Cubs shut out Giants for 2-0 win
(SAN FRANCISCO) – Jose Quintana told Kyle Hendricks he would do all he could to follow him with another strong start by the Cubs rotation. He did just that, and Victor Caratini hit an RBI double during a decisive seventh inning, helping Chicago beat the San Francisco Giants 2-0. A night after losing 2-1 in 11 innings despite a strong start from Kyle Hendricks, the Cubs had enough offense for Quintana (8-6), who allowed three hits in six scoreless innings to beat the Giants for the first time in his career. Addison Russell's one-out double in the seventh chased Giants starter Derek Holland (5-8). Russell advanced on Sam Dyson's wild pitch and scored on a bad throw by catcher Nick Hundley trying to get Russell at third. Caratini later doubled. Carl Edwards Jr. struck out the side in order in the seventh, Justin Wilson followed with a perfect eighth and Steve Cishek closed it out for his third save after taking the loss Monday. The Giants got just one base runner over the final four innings. Holland struck out eight and didn't walk a batter in 6 1/3 innings.
