Cubs 17, Pirates 3

In Postgame by berselius59 Comments

OSS: Cubs hit four homers and Javy steals home*. Three up: The Cubs blasted a bunch of homers to put this game out of reach, including two by Kyle Schwarber. But before then, they plated several runs on good baserunning. Javy Baez's steal of home, set up by a steal of second and a throwing error by Chris Stewart was …

Cubs 7, Jays 4

In Postgame by berselius74 Comments

OSS: Holy shit, Javy Baez. Three up: Baez had a nice day at the plate, going 2-4 with three runs batted in, but the highlight of the game was this ridiculous snag in the ninth inning. My only complaint is that he somehow makes it look *too* easy (dying laughing). Arrieta had another solid outing, striking out six in 6.1 …

Cubs 15, Reds 5

In Postgame by berselius286 Comments

OSS: We are back! (for the 19th time) Three up: The Cubs offense exploded for 15 runs against the Reds garbage fire of a pitching staff. Anthony Rizzo led the way with five RsBI, including back to back HRs with Kris Bryant in the fourth to put the game truly out of reach. He also got the scoring going in …

Cubs 16, Diamondbacks 4

In Postgame by berselius292 Comments

OSS: More of this, please. Three up: Jon Lester picked up his 2000th strikeout and hit his first major league home run. He also singled in this game, which should indicate how well everyone was seeing Dbacks starter Patrick Corbin tonight. Anthony Rizzo also blasted two home runs, bringing his season total up to 26. He's well on pace to …

OSS: Cubs take two of three on the road against their biggest playoff competition, and now lead by four games in the loss column. Three up: Ths Cubs scored their first two runs on a two-out rally in the sixth, keyed by a Willson Contreras infield single. As I was listening to it I was thinking that it felt like …

Cubs 2, Brewers 1 (11 innings)

In Postgame by berselius56 Comments

OSS: Jason Heyward launches the game-winner in extras Three up: J-Hey hit a solo shot off of Jared Hughes in the 11th to put the Cubs ahead for good. He's had a pretty good series, hitting a homer in this game and robbing noted crybaby Ryan Braun of another in the first game. I wouldn't necessarily say Kyle Hendricks looked …

In Postgame by berselius186 Comments

OSS: Kyle Schwarber had a big day. Three up: …ôrber had eleven total bases on the day, courtesy of two home runs and a triple that just missed going over the fence. Aside from the fact that he was crushing it in general, it was great to see that two of those shots were to left field. He had been …
