Cubs starting pitchers continue their streak of seeing great performances go wasted, as Yu Darvish was fantastic overall tonight … but it didn’t matter, as the two runs he allowed were too much.
To their credit, Cardinals pitchers executed very well tonight, and the Cubs couldn’t come through in the few big opportunities they had. Despite what many say, I don’t think the *approach* was bad tonight. They just didn’t really barrel the ball for crap.
It’s frustrating. It’s anthemic. We keep seeing it.
At least Jason Heyward had another great night. Shrug. This sucks.
