That was a wild one, eh?
Consider that there was …
- A leadoff homer.
- A grand slam.
- Three other Cubs homers.
- Kyle Schwarber robbed of a homer by Jay Bruce.
- Kyle Schwarber hitting his first single in nearly a month.
- 15 hits and 14 runs by the Cubs.
- Jon Lester dominating for seven innings (after the obligatory first inning run), and getting a hit and a walk.
- The dude with the grand slam also struck out four times.
- The teams combined for 25 strikeouts but still scored 17 runs.
That was just a wild and fun game. If you’re a Cubs fan, that is. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, because we haven’t had too many games like that to enjoy this year. The Cubs are now back to .500!
Clearly it was all because Anthony Rizzo batted leadoff, right?
