Today the Cubbies beat the Pirates 7-5.

Prior picked up his first win of the season to move to 1-5. He pitched 5 2/3 innings giving up 5 hits, 3 walks and 3 earned runs. He also struck out five.

Despite playing for the Cubs, Prior is one of my favorite pitchers. I'm hoping he can bounce back and stay healthy. He was hitting 91/92 on the radar today with decent location most of the day. He did make a couple of mistake pitches then tried placing instead of pitching in the fifth inning, but otherwise he looked decent.
