How about a series win to close out the mini-AL slate and send Kyle Schwarber on his way to AAA Iowa?
And today’s winner featured a dominant performance by Jake Arrieta – anyone doubt he’d come back strong after a disappointing outing last time around? – a homer by Anthony Rizzo, and a grand slam by Dexter Fowler.
That was a great way to finish the road trip and head home to face the Dodgers. I’d imagine the energy is feeling good.
