Rapid Reaction: Dbacks 6, Cubs 1
Here’s a quick look at the Chicago Cubs' 6-1 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday at Chase Field in Phoenix.
How it happened: Jeff Samardzija allowed five runs on seven hits, getting knocked out in the sixth inning in the opener in the desert. The Cubs only managed one run off the Diamondbacks bullpen, which was quickly called to duty when starter Joe Saunders was scratched just before game time. Geovany Soto hit a solo homer in the fourth to give the Cubs a brief lead.
