SHARE Piniella turns to Kendall for Game 3

Despite hitting the Cubs only home run in the National League Division Series, rookie catcher Geovany Soto wont get the starting not for Game 3 at Wrigley Field on Saturday.

I think tomorrow we’re going to catch [Jason] Kendall, manager Lou Piniella said on Friday.

Soto, whose home run in Game 2 is his only postseason hit in six at-bats, originally got the starting nod because he has a better arm than Kendall, but the rookie hasnt been able to slow the Diamondbacks running game. The Cubs might also has more trust in Kendall to call the game for young pitcher Rich Hill.
