The Cubs could muster very little offense today, as Jake Odorizzi was dominant, before yielding to an equally dominant bullpen.

Edwin Jackson’s outing was mixed. Although he allowed three earned runs over six innings (“quality”), he struck out only three, and walked as many. Of course, he could have allowed just one run, and the Cubs would have lost.
