The Cubs might not be winning, but according to Doug Davis, they’re one happy family.
â€œI think everybodyâ€™s pulling for everybody right now,â€ Davis said. â€œIt was different a month ago. We are winning as a team and losing as a team. Letâ€™s continue to push each other and back each other on everything.â€
Well, at least if you can’t win, you can make friends! Ice cream for everyone after the game!
â€œNot really it just didnâ€™t seem like everybody was on the same page,â€ Davis said. â€œWeâ€™ve had a team meeting since then and things got straightened out. We are all on the same page and working for each other. Everybody is pitching in and giving us a chance to win a ball game. Thatâ€™s key for us, turning a new leaf over.â€
The most exciting part of last night’s loss was probably A.J. Pierzynski and Jake Peavy having a little disagreement in the dugout.
The battery mates exchanged some harsh words and carried their dispute into the tunnel leading to the Sox’ clubhouse after the top of the sixth inning.
Peavy pitched OK in his first start since coming off the disabled list with a groin injury and ran his record to 3-1. He allowed 3 runs on 3 hits and 3 walks in 5â…“ innings.
As he headed to the dugout after being pulled, Peavy appeared to turn back to the mound and point and yell something at Pierzynski.
â€œIt’s a Cubs-Sox game, so we have to make something happen,â€ he joked. â€œIt’s not a big deal. I don’t think it’s going to be an issue. I think it was something about signs.â€
