Enhanced Box Score: Pirates 2, Cubs 1 – August 19, 2018

Enhanced Box Scores

Sometimes there’s just too much steaming crap to keep track of it all.

I’m ticked that the offense – through 11 innings – once again managed just one solo home run. This is insane.

I’m ticked that a solid start from Jose Quintana was wasted. I’m also ticked that it was only five innings.

I’m ticked that the bullpen is getting so used up in games the Cubs are losing because the offense stinks right now.

I’m ticked that Addison Russell can’t stay on third.

I’m ticked that the home plate umpire calls critical third strikes on pitches 4 inches off the plate.

I’m ticked that this all happened on the same day as yet another Yu Darvish setback.

I’m just so ticked. I appear to have messed up the return key on my keyboard because I’ve been smacking it so hard with my pinkie in typing out this list. That’s how ticked I am.

Full box score.
