Cubs 3, Cardinals 1 (9.25.16)

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius264 Comments

OSS:   Three up You couldn’t have scripted it any better for David Ross’s final regular season game at Wrigley. A huge ovation from the crowd in his first PA, and a bomb of a home run in his second. It was also a classy move by Maddon to pull Ross in the seventh to soak in the moment. Even …

He lowered his ERA to second in the NL, behind teammate Cyle Hendricks. He was on pace for a Maddux in much of the early going, and is probably the favorite to start …
