In Commentary And Analysis by berselius33 Comments

OSS: Cubs close out August with a nail biter. Three up Kris Bryant homered again, keeping pace with Nolan Arenado for the NL lead. Jason Heyward had yet another solid day at the plate, going 2-3 with a walk, a RBI, and the totally common run-scored-on-balk.

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius16 Comments

OSS: Bryant and Heyward fuel a Cubs comeback. Three up: Kris Bryant poured a dump truck full of concrete into the foundation of his MVP case, hitting home runs number 34 and 35 to lead the Cubs to victory and put him back in the NL lead for homers. He might even have passed Mike Trout in the fWAR race, …
