Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 16, Red Sox 9 – July 2, 2014

Enhanced Box Scores

Clearly feeling like they’d won on the back of too little offense the two nights before, the Cubs decided that beating the Red Sox tonight for the sweep wasn’t enough. They were going to humiliate the Red Sox. I don’t know if it’s an exaggeration to suggest that this game, at the close of a sweep at home, will be the moment Red Sox fans look back on as the day the 2014 season ended for them, and the Red Sox decided they’d be better off as sellers.

The pitching left a lot to be desired tonight, but it didn’t matter when every Cubs bat was going off. There are too many good nights to spotlight, though Justin Ruggiano, Mike Olt, Nate Schierholtz, and Darwin Barney deserve special mention.
