Both Starters In Today's Cubs/Astros Game End The Day Elsewhere

The Cubs murdered the Astros 12-3, taking nine runs out of the hide of Houston starter Russ Ortiz, all of them earned, including two home runs; Ortiz only lasted 2.1 innings. The former Giants starter had an 0-3 record with a 12.23 ERA in five July starts, and was later placed on unconditional release waivers.

The Cubs' starter in that same game, Kevin Hart, also got the win, the third of his season. He, Jose Ascanio, and Class A infielder Josh Harrison were all shipped to Pittsburgh for reliever John Grabow and minor league starter Tom Gorzelanny. Gorzelanny was a 14-game winner in 2006 but has scuffled since. Tough deal for both pitchers, especially Hart: thanks for the win, here's your ticket to Pittsburgh.
