OSS: Cubs win in a laugher to eliminate the Cardinals from the NL Central title.
Three Four up:
- The Cubs snuffed out the Cardinals faint division title chances on their own turf, which is nice to see. At the time I write this the Rockies are losing, so it doesn't hurt that race quite so much aside from the fact that it's one less opportunity to pick up ground.
- Addison Muscle had the big hit of the day that got everything started, a three run double in the first inning. He also did a fan a solid after falling into his nachos, buying a replacement set.
- Kris Bryant had a big day, going 3-4 with a walk and a home run.
- Jon Lester looked….okay….or at least he had okay results. There were still plenty of hard hit balls off of him though.
Three Zero Down:

Next up: Jake takes on Carlos Martinez at 7:15 PM CT. The Reds face the Brewers in MIller Park at 6:40 PM CT, where Zach Davies takes on something called Deck McGuire, who sounds like he should be starting at slot reciever for the Patriots instead of starting for the Reds.
