Cubs 7, Phillies 2 (5.29.16)

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius2 Comments

OSS: Cubs sweep the Phillies, grind their bones to make their bread. Three up Ben Zobrist's hot streak continues, this time thanks to a three run homer in the third inning. We're at the point where a one hit game seems disappointing from him. Do better smh. John Lackey was solid today striking out six batters in seven innings and …

Cubs 4, Phillies 1 (5.28.16)

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius39 Comments

OSS: Kyle Hendricks threw a Maddux in my heart Three up Kyle Hendricks had his best start of the season, going the distance with seven strikeouts, no walks and six baserunners. He probably should have got the Maddux, but some miscommunication between Heyward and Zobrist in the ninth turned a lazy pop fly into a leadoff double for the Phils. …

Cubs 6, Phillies 2 (5.27.16)

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius77 Comments

OSS: David Ross picks up his 100th HR and the Cubs roll the Phillies on a stormy day. Three up David Ross hitting his 100th homer was the big story of the day. I was at lunch and missed it but you'd have to think that Pat Hughes called it a Turning Point. A lot of us here didn't want …

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius4 Comments

OSS: An ugly win is still a win Three up Kris Bryant had a great day at the plate, going 2-3 with a walk and a homer. He was the Cubs overall WPA leader on the day but the biggest single individual play was… Jason Heyward's two-run double in the second inning. The Cubs scored in a hurry in the …
