Enhanced Box Score: Brewers 3, Cubs 1 – September 18, 2016

Enhanced Box Scores

The Cubs scored just once despite nine hits and two walks? You can usually book it that there are two culprits: lack of situational hits (check), lack of power (check).

That’s how it was for the Cubs today, who had plenty of chances to score with the regulars back in there, but simply couldn’t cash in.

On the pitching side, Kyle Hendricks was dominant, despite seeing his ERA rise. Two earned runs in six innings isn’t bad, and that’s especially true when the guy gives up just six hits, strikes out nine, and walks none.

Alas, it’s another loss to the Brewers – that’s five of the Cubs’ last six against Milwaukee! – and a home four-game series loss. Hooray for clinches?
