Cubs 4, Miami 0

OSS: Q keeps on rolling.

Three up:

  1. 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.
  2. Javy Baez had a three hit day, including a loooooong home run to the opposite field to add a little insurance late in the game.
  3. David Bote and Daniel Descalso had nice games, going 4-6 with three walks and 2 RBI. These two already feel like the same player in my head, and perhaps Descalso is actually Bote 6.5 years into the future, folded into our current timeline. Props to the front office for harnessing the power of quantum superposition.

Three down:

  1. A rough day for the Bryzzo Souvenir Company, who went 0-9 in this one.
  2. Brandon Kintzler induced a double play from the first batter he faced, but then came close to coughing up the lead three batters later. Bullpen gotta bullpen.
  3. There were a couple of TOOTBLANs in this one, including Bote being picked off from first base and Baez being called out on what should have been a nice hustle double when he momentarily came off the bag. I didn’t see the replay but noted impartial observers Pat and Ron seemed to think the tag wasn’t on him when he came off.

Next up: The Cubs go for the sweep at 6:10 tomorrow. Cole Hamels faces Sandy Alcantara.

    The Xandar Nova Corps are down a few players right now, their walk rate has likely spiked as they call up pitchers from the minor leagues.
