OSS: Cubs try to get blown out on the road again, but the Pirates just weren’t having it. Three up: Kris Bryant had the biggest hit of the day, a line drive homer in the seventh that finally broke the tie. Bryant also drew a walk and a HBP in this game. It is curious that both Bryant and Rizzo …

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.

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.

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 …

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.
