Hendricks hit a bases-loaded single in the second inning off Jeff Samardzija, who was sloppy all through his short outing. Travis Wood tacked on a solo home run in the fourth inning to give insurance that the Cubs didn’t end up needing, but …

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius42 Comments

OSS: The Cubs prevail in a nerve-wracking pitchers duel. Three up: The obvious highlight of the game was the lone run scored in the game, a bomb by Javy Baez that looked like it was ticketed for Waveland but was almost blown back onto the field before hitting the basket. I’d like to say that this was the result of …

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius

OSS: The Cubs get to do this one more time to close out the season. Three Four Five up: It was a big day for Miguel Montero, who went 3-5 with 3 RBI and scored on a balk. He’s had a rough year all around, but it’s been nice to see him warm up these last few weeks. I get …
