"You lose some respect for the fans," pitcher James Russell said after the game. "It's your home park, they should be behind you no matter what. It's not like he's going out there trying to give up games. He's out there busting his butt every day. Personally, it gets under my skin because that's my teammate. I have his back no matter what. It kind of bugs you whenever you hear that. There's no room for it."
Chicago Cubs teammates came to the defense of relief pitcher Carlos Marmol after he was booed on two separate occasions in the Cubs home opening loss, 7-4, to the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday.
