Marquis searches for first win in over a month

Jun 20, 2007 - 2:37 PM Chicago Cubs (32-37) at Texas (26-44) 8:35 pm EDT

ARLINGTON, Texas (Ticker) -- The Chicago Cubs have been finding ways to win lately, but Jason Marquis hasn't been a big help.

Marquis searches for his first win since May 9 when the Cubs visit the Texas Rangers on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old righthander got off to a sparkling start this season, going 5-1 over his first seven starts. Since then, he is 0-2 over his past seven starts.

Marquis (5-3, 3.14 ERA) has been the victim of shaky defense and poor run support, allowing at least one unearned run in his last four starts.

Rangers slugger Sammy Sosa - stuck on 599 career homers - is hoping to hit his historic blast against his former team. He went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's game, and is 4-for-12 with no homers and two strikeouts in his career against Marquis.

Texas will counter with Kameron Loe (2-6, 6.56). The 25-year-old righthander responded to his demotion to the minors with his best outing of the season last Thursday, allowing five hits in eight scoreless innings to earn a win at Pittsburgh.

Loe was demoted to the minors after his start on June 7 in which he yielded nine runs and nine hits in just 2 2/3 innings.

The Cubs have won 10 out of 16 games.
