Although you could kick dirt and stomp around about how close the Cubs were to winning the first two games in this series, there will be none of that today.

Jake Arrieta was not at his sharpest (though he was still a better Ben Zobrist throw or an Anthony Rizzo dig away from a scoreless, albeit short, outing), and Justin Grimm imploded sufficiently to put this game out of reach before the Cubs had even scored a run.

There will be things to deconstruct from this one tomorrow, and perspective to be gained, but for today: woof.
