SWEEP! AT HOME! NATURALLY!
Yu Darvish was fantastic today, even as his defense didn’t give him much help, and even as the Brewers absolutely stacked the lineup against him with lefties. Smart move, and it definitely helped grind Darvish down early, but he still made it through five strong innings. Great outing.
And then some really nice work in low-leverage from Derek Holland (against all lefties, woo!) and Tyler Chatwood to finish things off.
Offensively the Cubs got things kicked right off with Jason Heyward once again going deep to open the Cubs’ scoring, and he added an RBI triple for run number two. The Cubs just kept adding from there and made things relatively comfortable by the end.
