Enhanced Box Score: Brewers 12, Cubs 5 – September 6, 2017

Enhanced Box Scores

Anthony Rizzo homered in the top of the first inning, but before the ball had landed, Jason Hammel was getting rocked by the Brewers in the bottom of the frame. When the dust settled, the Brewers had plated five, and didn’t look back.

It was a shame, too, because Rizzo wound up hitting another homer later. It would have been fun if it had been part of a late comeback.

Hector Rondon, fresh off the DL (triceps), got in a nice, low-leverage, ease-him-in opportunity, and, although the scoresheet says he gave up a run, it was a couple grounders that found holes and a stolen base. Shrug. He looked generally fine, if a little rusty. That’s good by me.

Outside of that, a nice game at the plate by Miguel Montero, and a Munenori Kawasaki pinch-hit double, there’s not much to do with this one except throw it away.

Might as well get weird …
