Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 14, Mets 3 – June 13, 2017

Chicago Cubs

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?
