Cubs

In the latest oddity during this Cubs season, the Wrigley grounds crew remained under fire two days after TarpGate resulted in the suspension, protest and resuming of Tuesday's rain-soaked game.
The Cubs are shutting down struggling starter Edwin Jackson with a right lat strain, but when he returns to the rotation he understands he has plenty to prove to his teammates, coaches and fans.
The Cubs placed Starlin Castro on the bereavement list as he deals with a tragic family situation back home in the Dominican Republic. He may be with his family for up to a week.

    Rain is in the forecast as the Cubs and Reds hope to play a full game. Can Starlin Castro inch closer to 200 hits this season vs. Cincinnati's Johnny Cueto? Castro currently sits on 191 hits after a first-inning single.

    Earlier this season, Cubs fans invaded Fenway Park for a weekend series with the Red Sox. Next year, expect to see Red Sox Nation take over Wrigley Field from June 15-17, writes CSNChicago.com's Patrick Mooney.

    With three different division winners in the last three years in the NL Central, it shows that there's no reason why the Cubs can't contend as early as next year. That's one incentive that could entice the Cubs future GM.

    If you were looking for offense this wasn't the game, as the Reds defeated the Cubs, 2-1. Ryan Dempster only allowed two runs in the loss. Carlos Pena and Darwin Barney had two hits apiece for Chicago.
