OSS: A solid game from Q and some Brerrors stop the slide.
- 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 was his third straight better-than-quality start, and hopefully a sign that the ship is righted.
- Addison Russell made a ludicrous defensive play to nab Braun in the ninth inning. Addy has struggled with the bat this year but his defense looks better than ever.
- David Bote’s reaction to the Russell play deserves its own bullet.
- The Cubs are still only three up in the loss column so hopefully they take care of business tomorrow.
- The top of the lineup struggled in this one, going 0-12 with four strikeouts.
- The Cardinals won, which is always lame.
Next up: The Cubs go for the series win with Cyle on the mound facing Chase Anderson. Hopefully we find out before the game that MLB has rescheduled Thursday’s game for the end of the month.
