OSS: Cubs' bats fall silent as the Cubs lose another close game.
1. Tommy La Stella was the only person to reach base twice for the Cubs in this game. It sort of stinks for him, as he'd be a starter on many, many teams. Doesn't get much run on this squad.
2. Javier Baez had a pinch hit single that loaded the bases; at that point, I thought the Cubs were going to win.
3. Nice to give Addison Russell props here for a TREMENDOUS defensive play in the first inning. That dude is a wizard:
1. Jason Heyward's double play effectively killed our chances of winning the game.
2. Kris Bryant did have a hit, but he also had 3 strikeouts and didn't look all that great at the plate.
3. Clayton Richard should be DFA'ed in relatively short order.
