Enhanced Box Score: Brewers 11, Cubs 1 – September 4, 2018

Chicago Cubs

This one had the vague look of a competitive ballgame for a few innings, before a cascading stew of poopball befell the Cubs. There was a parade of walks, HBP, a wild pitch, a passed ball, three errors, mental mistakes, and more free runs than the Brewers were able to shake a bat at.

This tweet kinda sums it up:

The Brewers later added some actually-hit-driven-in runs, so, whew. That sure would have been awkward.

Offensively, the Cubs could do very little, which, hey, if that’s gonna happen sometimes, better it be paired with a blowout than a 2-1 loss. These types of games – with apologies – I just don’t have much trouble shaking them off. I don’t think the Cubs are ACTUALLY going to screw up so repeatedly and massively in every game, so I don’t think tonight predicts the future all that well. It’s just a crummy loss, and you move on to tomorrow.

Just. Don’t. Get. Swept.

Full box score.
