The Chicago Cubs' bullpen continues to underwhelm in a significant way, and let's just say Steve Cishek isn't going to be flipping out like a positive lunatic after this one. Chicago held a 5-4 lead heading into the ninth, but all it took was two batters for the Cincinnati Reds to take the lead.

Goodbye. A no-doubter right off the bat.
Perhaps Cishek wasn't watching this game earlier? Suarez was swinging away at EVERY first pitch, so giving him a fastball up in the zone to crush probably wasn't the best of ideas.
