This is Cubtown
Left-hander Randy Wolf (2-1, 3.02 ERA) pitches for the Dodgers.
Hello, goodbye … hello
The Cubs recalled Bobby Scales today, as Ryan Freel hit the disabled list with a left hamstring strain. That comes one day after he was optioned to Iowa …
(Typically, players cannot be recalled for 10 days after being sent down, but that does not apply in cases of injury.)
Notes from our media relations department:
Randy Wells Saturday night in San Diego tossed 3.0 scoreless frames before allowing the first runs of his major-league career in the fourth inning … the runs allowed capped a couple of impressive streaks for Wells, as he went 19.1 innings to start his major-league career and 18.1 innings to start his Cubs career without allowing a run.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Wells is the only pitcher on record to toss 18.1 innings to start his Cubs career … the previous longest run on record to start a Cubs career was Vern Olsen with 15.1 scoreless frames covering the 1939-40 seasons.
