OSS: Kris Bryant – he’s back!
- Bryant went 2-4 with a double, single, and two strikeouts in his return to the lineup from his lingering shoulder injury.
- Kyle Hendricks had a solid start, allowing one run on six hits and two walks in six innings. It’s nice to see him looking more like his old self, if not necessarily Cyle.
- The Brewers and Cardinals both lost, so the Cubs division lead is back up to 4.5 games.
- I got nothin’ here. This was about as low drama as a win can get.
Next up: The Cubs go for the series win against Aaron Nola at 12:35 CT. Nola’s been so good (and the Phillies defense so bad) this year that he may have broken pitching WAR.
