PHILADELPHIA -- Here's a quick look at the Cubs' loss on Saturday.

The good: Cubs’ starting pitcher Matt Garza gave up two runs (one earned) in six innings. Garza matched former Cy Young winner Cliff Lee’s solid outing. Second baseman Darwin Barney broke an 0-for-14 slump with a pair of base hits.

The bad: The Cubs committed two more errors on Saturday, including Barney’s first-inning boot that led to an unearned run. The Cubs’ 52 errors are the most in baseball. Left-hander Sean Marshall gave runs on the road for the first time this season.

Outside the box: Righty Angel Guzman threw two innings in his first professional game since 2009 at Single-A Peoria on Friday night. Guzman underwent right shoulder surgery in March 2010.

Next: Doug Davis (0-5) will try to win his first game as a Cub against Roy Oswalt (3-4).
