The Cubs managed just one run against Madison Bumgarner Thursday and the young hitters are getting a crash course against some of the best arms in the game this week.
Dan Haren had another rough outing Thursday, tagged for five runs in 6 1/3 innings. After the Cubs traded for him at the deadline, the veteran starter said he hasn't held up his end of the bargain.
The Cubs took a low-risk gamble by acquiring former Rays/Mariners closer Fernando Rodney to their bullpen mix, acquiring the veteran in a trade Thursday.
