Cubs Recall Raley
CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs have recalled left-hander Brooks Raley from Triple-A Iowa to pitch the second game of their day-night doubleheader against the Reds.

The 24-year-old Raley was 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA for Chicago in his first two career starts after being called up from Iowa on Aug. 7. He was optioned to Iowa on Monday after losing 3-0 to Cincinnati in Chicago on Sunday.

The Cubs weren't required to send anybody out to make room for Raley. Baseball's rules allow teams to add a 26th player to their active roster for doubleheaders such as Saturday's, which was scheduled after a May 1 postponement.
