I’d be lying if I pretended to have paid close attention to this game after the fourth inning foul ball that doubled me over at the kitchen table so much that The Wife knew something was deeply wrong in the game. I just hope beyond hope that the young fan is going to be OK. Everything else is fuzzy scenery.
I do know that Kyle Hendricks pitched a gem, and that Steve Cishek managed to close out a one-run win in the 9th. I also know that the Cubs weren’t able to muster any offense with runners on base (again), but that homers by Kyle Schwarber and Kris Bryant carried the day. I’m happy, in a relative sense, that the Cubs won the game.
