OSS: Cubs sweep the Cards back to a losing record
- Kyle Hendricks was solid again today, allowing just one run in seven innings. As Coom pointed out on the broadcast, the pen is likely to get some work in next week’s series in Coors so it’s good to see him going deep in the game.
- The other Kyle continues to do well from the leadoff spot, stroking two hits, both driving in runs, and drawing a walk in four PAs.
- David Bote’s tie breaking RBI single in the fifth was the biggest play of the game by WPA.
- Can’t complain about a sweep of the Cardinals!
- But the stupid Pirates managed to get swept by the Brewers.
Next up: The Cubs head to Coors for a three game set. The first game is a rematch of Yu Darvish and German Marquez, at 7:40 CT on Monday.
