The Cubs’ dominated the Reds on the pitching side, and a couple homers were the difference.
That’s a sweep, folks. The Orioles came into this series as one of the clear top teams in baseball.

The Cubs won the game, but that won’t be the story.
Dingers and Hendricks. Fun stuff. Also, the relievers.
Jake Arrieta just Arrieta’d all over the Mets.

14 more strikeouts for Cubs batters. It’s mind-boggling.
So many strikeouts. I can’t see.
