There was no obvious player to send out to make room for Matusz.
That was a crappy loss. No question about it.
Quite a big deal in the NL playoff race.

Anthony Rizzo gets a breather.

The Cubs won easily.
The stove is red hot, my friends.
The Cubs still haven’t lost a series after the break, sorta.
