Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 7, Brewers 4 – April 19, 2017

Chicago Cubs


It didn’t take long for the Cubs to scuttle the memory of last night’s thrilling win, as Kyle Hendricks’ struggles continue, with command issues and persistent fastball velocity in the mid-80s creating an explosive combination for opposing bats. (More on that later. Right now is happy time.)

The Cubs were once again down multiple runs before even picking up a bat (third time this series), and once again the bullpen did a great job keeping the game close.

The bats once again chipped away just enough to bring the drama to a head in the 9th inning, and after Kris Bryant tied things up with a single to center, Addison Russell got a chance to play hero with two on and two out. Instead of just knocking a game-winning single, he decided to launch a game-winning, walk-off bomb.

Full box score.
