      Cody Ransom notable for Cubs

      Cubs third baseman Cody Ransom went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts hitting out of the No. 2 spot in the lineup during Chicago's 6-4 loss to Cincinnati Saturday. Since getting a hit in his first five games, Ransom has gone 0 for 6 with two walks over his past three outings (two starts). Despite the cold stretch, Ransom is expected to remain in a platoon at third base with Luis Valbuena following Ian Stewart's demotion to Triple-A Iowa Friday. Valbuena replaced Ransom as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning Saturday. "He's going to strike out a lot against right-handed pitching, but he's always been very dependable in the field at every position, has an accurate arm," manager Dale Sveum said about Ransom. "He's a guy who's a no-panic kind of defensive player. We knew what we were getting and obviously, he's done a really nice job at the plate."
