John Grabow is going to the Disabled List with yesterday’s leg injury. More later.
The Cubs lost 2-1 to the Pittsburgh Pirates, but Brian Schlitter made a successful MLB debut (go down two posts), but Cashner is again left in too long and Marmol struggled yet again, as the Cubs lose 2-1 to the Pirates.

Jackson homered to drive in two to get Tennessee within 2 with a 7-5 score.
Brian Schlitter made his MLB debut in the 7th inning of today’s game against the Pirates as John Grabow came out mid-batter with a leg injury. He struck out the batter Grabow started and the next batter as well. That’s as long as Schlitter’s impressive debut went, as Cashner came in to pitch a scoreless 8th, and that is where we stand now. 1-1 tie with the Cubs coming up in the 8th. Schlitter was called up following the first game of the Cubs @ Sox series, sending down Jeff Stevens, as a result of Carlos Zambrano’s suspension and the need for a fresh bullpen arm.
