Cubs 6, Marlins 0

In Postgame by berselius47 Comments

OSS: The Marlins stink, but a road sweep is a road sweep. Three up: Cole Hamels had another great start, striking out 8 in seven scoreless innings. I think JD said at one point that only one ball had reached the outfield all game. That was before he ran into some trouble in his last inning due to a fielding …

Cubs 4, Miami 0

OSS: Q keeps on rolling. Three up: Jose Quintana posted his second great start in a row, pitching seven scoreless innings with seven K’s and no walks. Q threw 63 strikes and just 28 balls, which I’m sure was music to the ears of Joe and the Cubs coaching staff. Javy Baez had a three hit day, including a loooooong …

Cubs 7, Marlins 2

OSS: Darvish levels up to kinda meh. Three+ up: Willson Contreras had a big day at the plate, going 2-3 with a HR, a bases loaded walk, and a HBP. The homer followed the hit by pitch, and Willson made sure to take his time around the bases. David Bote actually had an even better day, WPA-wise, with an assist …

Cubs 10, Pirates 0

OSS: Cubs thump Pirates, hopefully turn the page on the dumpster fire road trip. Three up: The Cubs sent Jameson Taillon packing with a little help from Pirates shortstop Kevin Newman, who had three errors in the second inning. Jon Lester, of all people, drove in the first run at Wrigley in 2019. The game was out of hand at …

Cubs 14, Brewers 8

OSS: Cubs offense gets ahead of the Cubs pitching, for one day at least. Three up: Jason Heyward, of all people, had a big day at the plate, going 3-3 with two homers and two walks. Between this and his garbage time HR yesterday, he has brought his slash line up to .370/.419/.704. Hopefully he manages to gets some more …

Rockies 2, Cubs 1

In Postgame by berselius202 Comments

OSS: Not with a bang but a whimper. Three up: The Cubs pitching staff came to play today. Jon Lester got the start and stepped up by allowing just one run in six innings, striking out nine. Joe pinch hit for him in the bottom of the sixth, which was easily the right move, but the Cubs blew their chance …

Cubs 8, Cardinals 4

In Postgame by berselius195 Comments

OSS: Cyle takes care of business, the Cardinals defense not so much. Three up: Kyle Hendricks threw eight innings, striking out just two but mostly limiting the damage by the Cards offense. Most importantly, he limited the Cubs bullpen from making an appearance, as all of the semi-reliable guys left on the roster had pitched in the past few games. …

Cubs 3, Pirates 0

OSS: Cubs get just enough, stretch division lead to one game. Three up: David Bote had the big hit of the day, a two out triple that put the Cubs on the board in the second inning. The Pirates put Schwarber on to start the inning thanks to some outfield miscommunication between Marte and Osuna, and for a while it …

Cubs 7, Pirates 6

In Postgame by berselius75 Comments

OSS: Cubs clinch playoff spot, hang on to a razor-thin half game lead, cause everyone to tear their hair out. Three up: The bats finally woke up, courtesy of a first inning opposite field home run by Jason Heyward. Despite the first inning home run, Quintana had a solid start. He struck out four with no walks in five innings, …
