Cubs 4, Cardinals 1 (9.12.16)

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius15 Comments

OSS: Three outs away from a Cy Young? Three up: Kyle Hendricks was just amazing today, taking a no-hitter into the ninth inning before losing it on a HR by Jeremy Hazelbaker. Even aside from the no-hit bid he was also on pace for a Maddux for most of this game. He lowered his league leading ERA to 2.03, and …

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius14 Comments

His slash line since the weekend off in Coors now stands at .308/.320/.442, and hopefully he just keeps on hitting. Addison Russell had a great …
