Topic - Jeff Samardzija
A day after Samardzija was dealt from the Chicago Cubs to Oakland, he was picked Sunday for the game at Target Field in Minnesota on July 15. Samardzija was selected as an NL All-Star, but Major League Baseball said he is ineligible to play because of the league switch.

Darwin Barney hit a long drive to left in the second inning, and Junior Lake went deep in the third. It looked as if the Chicago Cubs were headed for a big day at the plate.
Travis Wood made a beeline for fellow pitcher Jeff Samardzija's locker. He wanted to apologize for all of that run support.
"You keep pitching and giving your team a chance to win," Samardzija said. "Everyone is trying to do their jobs and sometimes balls find holes, and sometimes they don't."
"It's a tough day to hit with that wind," he said. "It's just the way it goes sometimes. You can't let it get to you."
