Cubs' Jorge De La Rosa: Picks up first hold with Cubs
1 min read
De La Rosa recorded two outs in Friday's 1-0 win over the Pirates to notch his seventh hold of the season and first in a Cubs uniform.
Brandon Kintzler started the eighth inning, and after a one-out single, manager Joe Maddon turned to De La Rosa to get left-handed pinch hitter Adam Frazier. De La Rosa was able to induce a double play to quickly get out of the inning. The 37-year-old lefty looks like he could be used primarily against same-handed hitters the rest of the way as a specialist out of the Chicago bullpen.
