Cubs 5, Mets 2

In Postgame by berselius35 Comments

OSS: Cubs bats wake up on the road, for once. Three up: The Cubs bats actually came up with some big hits on the road, a rare occurrence these days. Javy Baez and Addison Russell both homered off of Marcus Stroman, who is a pretty dang good pitcher. The real MVP of this game, however, was Yu Darvish, who continued …

Cubs 1, Giants 0

OSS: Cyle outduels Shark on the way to a sweep. Three up: Kyle Hendricks was dominant in this one, striking out seven with no walks and three hits in seven shutout innings. Cyle’s changeup has always baffled hitters, but today it was his 86 mph cheese that was freezing guys. The dude can pitch. The rest of the bullpen was …

OSS: Blow *ALL* the leads! Three up: Kris Bryant had the last big hit of the day, a two run shot in the eighth that put the Cubs ahead for the last time. That homer alone was worth nearly half a win in WPA. KB also singled as a part of the Cubs rally in the sixth inning. Nick Castellanos …

OSS: Cubs try to get blown out on the road again, but the Pirates just weren’t having it. Three up: Kris Bryant had the biggest hit of the day, a line drive homer in the seventh that finally broke the tie. Bryant also drew a walk and a HBP in this game. It is curious that both Bryant and Rizzo …

OSS: Cubs win a game on the….road? Three up Ian Happ is certainly making the most of his call up. He had his second four RBI game in a row, and already has three homers in his 13 games in the bigs. The Cubs other new acquisitions had big days, with Jonathan Lucroy going 3-5 with a double and two …

OSS: Cubs sweep away Beers. Three up: Jason Heyward had a big day, homering on the first pitch and hitting a RBI triple in his next PA. He also homered in Friday’s game, and his season line now sits at .276/.353/.472. Yu Darvish had another great outing, striking out eight beers against no walks and one Yelich solo shot in …

Cubs 2, Cardinals 0

In Postgame by berselius121 Comments

OSS: Cyle does his thing, the bullpen doesn’t do its thing. Three up: Cyle continued his dominance of the Cardinals this season, and now has allowed just one earned run in 23 innings, striking out 13 and walking none. He had to work around a little trouble in this one at times but managed to get the job done. After …

Cubs 6, Padres 5

OSS: Cubs pen tries to give one away, Padres defense gives it right back. Three up: Anthony Rizzo hit a grand slam in the third inning to give the Cubs a 4-3 lead, which was obviously the biggest hit of the day. I was surprised to hear on the broadcast that it was his first homer in over a month. …

OSS: Cubs finally win a series against the frickin’ Reds Three up: Sonny Gray mostly kept the Cubs bats in check, but his two mistakes were deposited in the bleachers for solo shots by KB and Russell. That was all the offense the Cubs would need for most of the game, as Darvish had his A game today. Darvish struck …
