Lou said this evening that Sean Marshall will start Saturday's game at Florida, not Sunday, as originally announced. Ryan Dempster has some personal business to take care of in Chicago, so he'll pitch Sunday instead of Saturday. The manager also sounded exasperated with Daryle Ward, who is 4-for-40 as a pinch hitter, which was his specialty. "I don't know," Lou said when asked what he could do to get Ward going. "We've tried. I don't know how. More at-bats? I don't know. It's been a struggle for him this year. We're hoping that he can get back on track and do what he's done in prior years." I asked about September call-ups. Look for Koyie Hill to come up to give the Cubs a third catcher. Lou said he didn't want to overcrowd things, so figure on about a half-dozen guys. Micah Hoffpauir, Angel Guzman, Hill and maybe Michael Wuertz, Felix Pie and Jose Ascanio. Lou says they'll discuss it more during the next homestand.
