Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 7, Cardinals 2 – July 22, 2018

Enhanced Box Scores

That’s a five-game series win! I wonder when the last time was that the Cubs did that to the Cardinals …

The Cubs once again had to come from behind to win this one, tying things up at two, and then pulling away late after a 7th inning Kyle Schwarber bomb gave the Cubs a one-run lead. They got hits up and down the lineup, and another big day from The Greatest Leadoff Hitter of All-Time.

Jose Quintana did the “gutsy” thing today, grinding through imperfections to give the Cubs seven strong innings on a season-high 121 pitches. For a guy who was given almost two weeks between starts, that might not seem like it was outrageous, but he was held out because of a sore/tired shoulder, so … he must have been feeling pretty darn good the last few days I guess.

Also, two of Quintana’s walks were of the intentional variety, so his line looks a little worse than it might otherwise. He was a little wild, but not really super wild.

From there, Jesse Chavez looked fantastic in the 8th, and Randy Rosario managed to finish things off in the 9th.

Full box score.
