Cubs 6, White Sox 1

In Postgame by berselius186 Comments

OSS: The Cubs give Hawk Harrelson a fitting send-off. Three up: Kyle Hendricks continued his solid string of starts, allowing one run and striking out five in 7.2 innings. The rest of the Cubs starters have struggled this year, but Kyle is bang on with his preseason projections. The biggest play of the game was Rizzo’s RBI double in the …

Cubs 8, White Sox 3

OSS: I spent half an hour trying to find a picture of Stan Hack that included his uniform number. Three+ up: Javy broke the ice early with a two run homer in the first inning. He also drove in some late runs as the Cubs piled on in the ninth. Most surprisingly, he drew another walk, this time as Giolito …

Cubs 9, Dbacks 1

OSS: Cubs bats jump on the Dbacks bullpen day early and turn this into a yawner. Three up: Javy Baez got the part started with a two run homer in the first inning, his 33rd on the year. He’s how only two dongs below Carpenter for the NL lead, and remains at the top of the NL RBI leaderboard. The …

OSS: Cubs bats wake up late to back a vintage Cyle performance. Three up: Vintage Cyle just missed out on the complete game in this one. Going into the ninth he had allowed just one hit and one walk with eight strikeouts. He gave up a solo shot in the top of the inning and was pulled with one out …

Cubs 3, Reds 2

OSS: Ian Happ blasts a HR to lead an exhausted Cubs team past the Reds. Three up: Things weren’t looking great for the offense, but it all changed on one swing of the bat by Happ. It was his first hit in over a week. Cole Hamels gave up back to back jacks to Joey Votto (not so surprising) and …

Cubs 4, Nationals 3

OSS: Cubs get the W, with some bullshit managing to go with some bullshit scheduling. Three up: Javy Baez went 3-4 with a RBI double, homer, another walk(!), and a game winning go ahead squeeze in extras. MVP please. Randy Rosario managed to close out the game, which is not a sentence I ever expected to write. He retired Rendon, …

Cubs 3, Brewers 0

In Postgame by berselius130 Comments

OSS: A solid game from Q and some Brerrors stop the slide. Three up: Q had a great game, allowing three hits and two walks and striking out seven in 6.2 innings. He was cruising until the seventh, when the wheels started to come off a bit, but that certainly beats said wheels falling off in the third instead. It …

OSS: Bote hits his 59th* game winning RBI of the season. *number approximate Three up: David Bote had another clutch hit against the Nats, though not quite as dramatic as his last one. Of course, it’s pretty tough to top a walk off grand slam down three runs. The Cubs won another game started by an ace-y pitcher. Strasburg isn’t …

OSS: Brerrors help put the Cubs back to five up in the loss column. Three up: Murphy homered to lead off the top of the fourth, which got the rest of the Cubs offense going.War Bear also hit a 6000 foot home run for some insurance later in the game. They got some help from multiple errors following a Rizzo …

OSS: Cubs beat another CYA contender. Three+ up: Murphy, Rizzo, and Baez all hit home runs off of Aaron Nola, who had only coughed up eight dingers in 176 innings this season. Nola was eventually chased by a Kyle Schwarber triple. War Bear also gunned down Phillies leadoff man Roman Quinn at third base on the first play of the …
