Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh, 16 April 2006

Rusch, Snell (


Glendon Rusch (0-2, 8.00) vs. Ian Snell (0-0, 9.00). Snell has been bad so far this year, but Rusch has been nearly as bad - he's allowed six home runs in his nine innings pitched. Homers have always been a problem for him. It looked like he'd nearly pitched his way out of baseball with a horrible 2003 with the Brewers, but he was solid in a swingman role with the Cubs in 2004 and 2005. He throws a decent fastball and a big curveball. He also has a changeup, but he relies pretty heavily on his curve and especially his fastball.
