"I was talking to Joe after the last outing and he told me I wasn't aggressive enough," Wada said. "I wasn't using the fastball enough. So today I focused on using the fastball and with our hitters' help, it was a big lead, but I was thinking about it being a 0-0 score."

Cubs SP Tsuyoshi Wada struggles in loss on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The big blow against Wada came in the second inning, when Danny Espinosa took him deep for a three-run blast. Wada allowed two more runs in the fourth before being lifted for a reliever.

The left-hander was making his fourth start of the season after returning from a stay on the disabled list. Prior to Friday, Wada had allowed a total of four runs over his first three outings. The rough outing inflated his ERA from 2.30 to 4.19.

"Compared to the first three games his stuff was not as solid around home plate," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said after the game, per ESPN.com.

Wada (0-1) will look to turn things around his next time out, scheduled for Thursday at home against the Reds.

"I liked the way it set up for us a lot," manager Joe Maddon said per MLB.com. "I wanted him to pitch to the lefty one more time, which was Harper. I really liked how we had it stacked after that. One pitch, and that's how this game is played sometimes. Our bullpen was outstanding again, too."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Wada was brilliant at the outset of Wednesday's start, striking out the side in the first and third innings while facing the minimum. He surrenderd a two-run homer in the fourth and was pulled with two outs and two on the fifth having thrown 69 pitches.

"He'd done his job," manager Joe Maddon said, per MLB.com. "I'm more about the Cubs winning as opposed to any particular pitcher winning. You can let him go for one more third of an inning, maybe it works, maybe it doesn't. I thought it was a great game for him to build off of."

Wada finished the day with two earned runs scored on four hits and one walk in 4 2/3 innings. He's lined up to face the Nationals on Monday.

"We also talked to him about the potential of becoming a starter again at some point. But right now we are looking at it this way."
