OSS: Erds gonna Erds.
- Cyle pitched a gem in some of the best hitters conditions you will ever see. Hendricks allowed just two hits and one walk with five strikeouts in seven shutout innings. He didn’t let up as the Cubs turned it into a laugher, saving the bullpen for next week’s games against deGrom and Thor.
- David Bote had another big game, knocking an RBI single in his first PA and hitting one to Waveland in his second to put the Cubs up 5-0.
- War Bear hit a two run homer that probably should have been a three run homer, had the Reds pitcher not balked in a run on the previous pitch. Then again, said balk probably led to the pitcher coughing up that bomb.
- It looks like the Brewers and Cardinals are both winning today.
- The Cubs get both deGrom and Thor in a three game series with the Mets starting tomorrow. Hopefully they pull goofy Ragnarok Thor.
Next up: The Cubs start a three game series with the Mets at Wrigley. Syndergaard takes on Lester at 7 tomorrow, followed by Hamels vs deGrom on Tuesday and Alec Mills vs Vargas in a day game to close out the series.
