Barney’s HR backs Villanueva
PHOENIX – All in all, it was a really nice day for Cubs starter Carlos Villanueva. Just don’t ask him about that one walk on his line.
Villanueva threw six scoreless innings in the Cubs’ 4-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday.
“I had that one walk, and I’m furious about it,” he said. “I hate giving up those free runners. I don’t know what the percentage is, but they almost always score. It sounds weird, but I’d almost rather give up a home run than a walk because if they’re going to score, at least they’re going to earn it.”
