Bullpen costs hard-luck Jeff Samardzija first win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cubs ace Jeff Samardzija pitched well enough to snag his first win of the season on Wednesday - and he would have if not for a ninth-inning meltdown by the bullpen.

The right-hander actually raised his earned run average to 1.53 by yielding just two runs on seven hits in 7 1/3 innings to the Diamondbacks. He walked two and fanned five. He threw 78 of 113 pitches for strikes.

Samardzija has pitched in tough luck all year. He has yet to give up more than two earned runs in any game, but his record still stands at 0-2.

Jeff Samardzija gets little help in loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija put together another strong start Friday, but still took the loss in a 4-1 loss.

Samardzija tossed seven innings for the fourth time in as many starts, but was ultimately downed by a lack of help from his defense. He allowed one earned run in the fifth inning, and then lost the game on a throwing error by second baseman Emilio Bonifacio which allowed the eventual winning runs to come across in the sixth.

Samardzija allowed three runs in seven innings, but only one was earned. He surrendered six hits and a pair of walks, while striking out seven batters on 114 pitches.

Samardzija has been the victim of terrible luck, as his record stands at 0-2 through four starts, despite twirling seven innings with two or fewer earned runs in each. He will put his 1.29 ERA up against the Diamondbacks in his next start, as he searches for his first win Wednesday.

Jeff Samardzija goes seven strong in no-decision
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija continued his recent success on Friday, but failed to factor into the decision in a 6-3 win over the Cardinals in extras.

Samardzija allowed a run-scoring single to Yadier Molina in the second frame for his only blemish of the night. He was charged with one run on six hits and no walks while striking out four over seven innings pitched. He tossed 98 pitches, 62 of which were strikes.

Samardzija lowered his ERA from 1.29 through his first three starts. He owns a 15:5 K:BB ratio over 21 innings pitched. He'll look to keep rolling Friday against Cincinnati.
