Carlos Silva pitched horribly again, but did manage to avoid fighting any teammates

The bad news? Carlos Silva got rocked again this afternoon, following two scoreless frames by coughing up eight runs in a disastrous third inning against the Angels.

The good news? He exited the game without incident, avoiding a fight with anyone in his own dugout for what is now one consecutive game.

Silva, who’s talked about feeling pressure to win a spot in the Cubs’ rotation, has now allowed 14 runs in 3.1 innings this spring. A couple more outings like that and he probably won’t have to worry about the pressure of competing for the job any longer.
