The Cubs and Astros combined to use a billion pitchers, as though they were fighting it out for a playoff spot, rather than for the mere avoidance of humiliation. The Cubs did the better of the avoiding, graciously accepting all of the base runners the Astros were willing to give them (of the starters, only Anthony Rizzo didn’t reach base by way of a hit or a walk). It’s a winning streak, folks!
