(9/12/13) Cubs starter Chris Rusin (2-4) tossed a quality start but failed to receive enough run support as he took the loss Thursday night against the Pirates. The left-hander surrendered two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out two over seven innings of a 3-1 defeat.
Rusin has allowed two earned runs or fewer in each of his last seven starts. He is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday at Milwaukee.
|Chris Rusin takes no-decision in short start |
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(9/6/13) Cubs starter Chris Rusin took a no-decision in Friday's game against the Brewers thanks to a high pitch count.
Rusin allowed just two runs over 3 2/3 innings, but he gave up seven hits and two walks and was removed after throwing his 85th pitch. Rusin owns a solid 2.89 ERA but has just a 1.5 K/BB and will need to pitch more efficiently to remain in the rotation looking forward to 2014.
|Chris Rusin maturing as major-league pitcher |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(9/1/13) Cubs starting pitcher Chris Rusin has performed well enough in his nine starts (2.74 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) in 2013, he's put himself in the mix to compete for a rotation spot next spring, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.
"A lot of pitchers will be pitching for spots [in spring training], but I can only control what I do, and that’s try to give the team the best chance to win," he said. "If I don’t make it [in the rotation], don’t take it the wrong way."
Cubs manager Dale Sveum said Rusin is a different pitcher this season than the one who went 2-3 with a 6.37 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in seven starts in his first taste of the majors last season.
"When guys get their feet wet like he did last year, it helps a lot," Sveum said. "He had struggles, but you learn to understand, 'This is what I have to do to get big-league hitters out.' The biggest thing for his maturity was learning to make pitches when he has to. He’s been able to calm down."
