At least it went to extra innings for the Blogathon.
Enhanced Box Scores
A record-setting marathon game, and a walk-off win for the Cubs.
Wada was excellent and the Cubs opened things up just enough late.
Kyle Hendricks was solid again, but the Cubs’ bats mustered nothing.
The bullpen let this one get away.
Eat it. Eat it all.
That … did not go well.
Well, that wound up not being all that close.
That was just a flat-out fun win.
Swept by the Diamondbacks. Probably not the second half start the Cubs wanted.
Travis Wood’s struggles continue.
The Cubs went out to an early lead, but Edwin Jackson and the bullpen couldn’t hold it.
Thud. The Cubs’ first half ends.
It was really, really, really not Edwin Jackson’s day.
