Did The Cubs Win?

OSS: Anthony Rizzo‘s HR still hasn’t landed.

Three Up

1. Anthony Rizzo, man. 2-3, double, 2-run HR that went a long, long, long way:

He’s been the Cubs’ MVP this year (either him or Shark).

2. Jake Arrieta was absolutely dominant in this game. He gave up a HR in the first round and zilch for the rest of it. He looked like nails. Unfortunately, he only does this 1 out of 4 turns.

3. Junior Lake! 2-4, 2B, up to .279/.301/.473 on the season. OBP over .300?

Three Down

1. I don’t want to shit on Mike Olt anymore, because I feel bad. However, 0-4, 2 K is a bad performance, no way around it. Olt sits at .180/.254/.441. His WAR for this season stands at a brisk 0.0.

2. Starlin Castro left 3 on base during his 0-4 day. He’s cooled off over his last 2, going 0-10.

3. Beef Castle was 0-4 with a strikeout.
