Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 8, Brewers 4 – August 15, 2018

Chicago Cubs

Hey, the bats do have some life in them! With some help from a bright sun and a shoddy Brewers defense, the Cubs took advantage of the opportunities they were given, and also slugged their way to eight runs on the day. It was the most runs the Cubs have scored since the first day of this month.

Every position player had at least one hit today, and each of the first four hitters in the shuffled lineup had at least two hits.

Kyle Hendricks looked VERY sharp today, generally flashing his great command and a nasty changeup. He got stung by a set of back-to-back-to-back two-out hits at one point, but outside of that, it was pretty smooth sailing, despite how the final stat line looks.

Carl Edwards did not have a good day in relief of Hendricks, who’d put on a couple runners to start the 7th inning, but Justin Wilson, Steve Cishek, and Pedro Strop did their thing to finish the game up.

David Bote was a beast all over this one – including in the field and on the bases – but this was a team effort …
