OLD FOLKS’ HOMERSLeave a Comment
The two oldest @Cubs, John Lackey and Koji Uehara, combined to pitch the first seven innings and the two oldest hitters, Ben Zobrist and Miguel Montero, each homered in the 7-4 comeback victory over the @RedSox Saturday.
THE FINAL PITCH
Lackey has now pitched at least six innings in each of his first five starts this year, the second time he’s done that in his career to open a season.
The Cubs hadn’t faced a knuckleballer since 2011. That year, they lost to then-Boston RHP Tim Wakefield before beating R.A. Dickey with Toronto four days later.
