Cubs 1, Pirates 0 (4.25.17)

In Postgame by berselius64 Comments

OSS: Just what one would expect after seventeen runs were scored on Monday. Three up: Kyle Hendricks looked rocky/bad early, adding fuel to the fire of speculation about his velocity and hard hit rate. But then he settled down over the last few innings and showed flashes of the Cyle we remember from last season. His final line was 6 …

OSS: Cubs bats wake up in a rout. Three up: Jason Heyward was the WPA winner of the day, getting the vaunted game winning RBI with his three run homer in the first. It was his third of the season, and his slash line now reads .294/.342/.456. The other WPA winner on the day was Addison Russell, who drove in …

OSS: Comeback Cubs blast their way to another late win. Three up: It was Anthony Rizzo's turn for thrilling heroics today. After going 0-4 with a strikeout and a walk on the day, Rizzo deposited a Jared Michael Lorenzen pitch in the right field seats to tie up the game. Maybe the World Series hangover is that the Cubs got …

Cubs 7, Brewers 4 (4.19.17)

OSS: Addison Muscle walks it off. Three up: Addison Russell capped off the Cubs comeback with a three run bomb to end the game in the bottom of the ninth. It's certainly the best kind of rally killer. Not surprisingly he was the Cubs WPA leader on the day. He also knocked in the Cubs third run in the eighth …

Cubs 9, Brewers 7 (4/18/2017 Recap)

In Uncategorized by myles58 Comments

OSS: The bats are alive! Three Four Up 1. Miguel Montero had a very nice day, with a basket homer and two other singles. Nice to see him heat up after a relatively cold start to the season. I'm not opposed to him getting 55 starts or so this year, just to help preserve Contreras. 2. Jason Heyward is still routinely …

Pirates 4, Cubs 2 (4.14.17)

In Postgame by berselius75 Comments

OSS: Cubs leave em loaded multiple times. Three up: Bryant and Rizzo had solid days at the plate, and it's not their fault that the guys behind them didn't knock them in. Rizzo did it the hard way, as he was hit twice as part of both bases loaded rallies. It was great to see Hector Rondon back after his …
