1000 Words: Volstad gets the ‘W’
What’s an extra 30 minutes when you’ve already waited 413 days? Right-hander Chris Volstad (1-9) earned his first win in a Cubs uniform—and his first in 24 starts—yesterday in a rain-shortened 5-0 affair with the Colorado Rockies. Volstad scattered three hits over 6 2/3 innings for his first victory since July 17, 2011, when he was a member of the then-Florida Marlins. The game was delayed for more than two hours at the outset, and was finally called after eight innings and another 30-minute delay.
