That’s another win, and a series win for the Cubs! Taking a four-game set in Milwaukee – that’s really, really good, my frents.
Jose Quintana bounced back in a huge way in his second start, just like Yu Darvish, and was not at all frequently threatened in this one. The bullpen took it flawlessly from there, and I get chills thinking about pitching days like this one. Just boom, boom, boom, boom, everyone does his job.
Offensively, Ben Zobrist is still scorching hot, and Willson Contreras is still smoking the ball. The Cubs didn’t score a ton of runs, but they did enough.
