Daniel Murphy Ends Cubs’ Scoreless Streak Against Jhoulys Chacin with and Oppo Blast (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs

Coming into the 4th inning tonight, the Cubs had faced Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin for 16 innings and they had scored in none of them. It … hurt.

That’s when Daniel Murphy FINALLY did a thing and the Cubs had a run against Chacin:

What a great piece of hitting that was. Even in a 2-0 count, Murphy was not sitting dead red fastball. Instead, he anticipated a get-me-over outside breaking pitch, sat back on it, and drove it the other way. Pretty stuff.

For Murphy, who’d also singled to lead off the game, it’s already been a big night shortly after I noted that his numbers had dipped a bit in recent days. It can all come right back up in a single night I said. And it already has. Small sample sizes are fun!
