Cubs 4, Marlins 3 (5.8.18)

In Postgame by berselius15 Comments

OSS: Just enough diggity from the bullpen and offense. Three up: With Darvish on the DL, it was a bullpen day for the Cubs. After the nominal starter Jen-Ho Tseng was chased following two ineffective innings, the rest of the Cubs pen posted a combined line of 7 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 2 BB, 7 K. All of the …

In Postgame by berselius47 Comments

OSS: That will work as a palate cleanser. Three up: The Cubs homered four times in this one, including homers from both sides of the plate from Ian Happ. If that wasn't baffling enough, all four homers were with runners on base, following a streak of 13 straight solo shots. Kyle Hendricks cruised through this one, allowing two extremely low …

OSS: Cubs head into May in first place. Three up: Kris Bryant had his first big hit since his HBP scare. His triple off the top of the wall just missed finding its way into the basket, and he eventually came around to score as the game winning run. He also made a plus-plus defensive play in the top of …

Cubs 3, Brewers 0 (4.28.18)

In Postgame by berselius41 Comments

OSS: Q and the defense shut things down. Three up: Jose Quintana crushed it today, pitching seven shutout innings with seven strikeouts and just two hits and one walk. The conditions were funky enough that I wouldn't read too much into the hits number, but it was great to see him commanding the strike zone. He also got an easy …

Cubs 3, Brewers 2 (4.27.18)

In Postgame by berselius24 Comments

OSS: Yu Darvish and the Brewers defense edge out the Brewers. Three up: Darvish looked like the guy that the Cubs are paying for today, striking out eight with two walks and three hits in six innings. He gave up one run in the first thanks to an uncharacteristic defensive miscue for Heyward. All his pitches seemed to be working …
