He also homered in Friday’s game, and his season line now sits at .276/.353/.472. Yu Darvish had another great outing, striking out eight beers against no walks and one Yelich solo shot in …

OSS: Cyle does his thing, the bullpen doesn’t do its thing. Three up: Cyle continued his dominance of the Cardinals this season, and now has allowed just one earned run in 23 innings, striking out 13 and walking none. He had to work around a little trouble in this one at times but managed to get the job done. After …

OSS: Cubs pen tries to give one away, Padres defense gives it right back. Three up: Anthony Rizzo hit a grand slam in the third inning to give the Cubs a 4-3 lead, which was obviously the biggest hit of the day. I was surprised to hear on the broadcast that it was his first homer in over a month. …

OSS: Cubs finally win a series against the frickin’ Reds Three up: Sonny Gray mostly kept the Cubs bats in check, but his two mistakes were deposited in the bleachers for solo shots by KB and Russell. That was all the offense the Cubs would need for most of the game, as Darvish had his A game today. Darvish struck …

KB and Robel Garcia also homered in this one to tie the game up in the earlier innings. Garcia has a .703 wOBA since being called up to the Cubs, and …

Today, Jason Heyward, Albert Almora, and Kyle Schwarber brought the lumber, and their three home runs brought their total in the three game series to six.

OSS: If you can draw five walks in one inning, chances are you’re going to win that game. Three up: Eight straight Cubs reached base against Sox ace Lucas Giolito and reliever Evan Marshall in the Cubs five run fifth inning. Giolito walked the bases loaded, then gave up back to back doubles to War Bear and Baez. Giolito struggled …

OSS: Cubs get some clutch hits, cruise to victory against another playoff contender. Three up: Willson Contreras had the two biggest hits of the day by WPA, driving in the Cubs first two runs by homering in the second inning and knocking in Javy on a RBI single in his next PA. He also prompted a kerfuffle with his first …

OSS: Adbert Alzolay Arrives Alliteravely Three up: Adbert Alzolay made his major league debut as a piggyback starter with Chatwood, and looked very impressive. Who knew that the Cubs could develop any pitchers? Alzolay struck out five batters in four innings and had wicked stuff. He was pulled in his fifth inning of the game after giving up a solo …

OSS: Cubs sweep the Cards back to a losing record Three up: Kyle Hendricks was solid again today, allowing just one run in seven innings. As Coom pointed out on the broadcast, the pen is likely to get some work in next week’s series in Coors so it’s good to see him going deep in the game. The other Kyle …
