Silva pushed back, won't face M's

Carlos Silva won't pitch against his former team after all. Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports via Twitter that Cubs right-hander Silva will not  make his scheduled start in Seattle on Thursday due to hamstring tenderness. Ted Lilly will pitch Thursday and Silva will be pushed to Saturday against the White Sox.

Silva's luck runs out


Cubs starter Carlos Silva has been pitching well this season, but he's also been getting plenty of run support (almost seven runs per nine innings, fifth in the National League). That dried up today , and so did Silva's bid to go 9-0.

Silva went seven innings against the White Sox, allowing two runs, but his offense couldn't deliver, scoring just one run in the ninth.

Silva was the first Cub to go 8-0 since Ken Holtzman went 9-0 in 1967, and the first pitcher to start 8-0 in his first season for the Cubs since King Cole 100 years ago.

The right-hander is going to be an All-Star, something inconceivable at the beginning of the season considering how utterly awful he'd been the past two seasons in Seattle (5-18 with a 6.81 ERA).
