Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 4, Mets 1 – August 29, 2019

Chicago Cubs

CUBS WIN! CUBS SWEEP! CUBS MAKE ME HAPPY!

If you thought the Cubs would go to New York and beat Marcus Stroman, Noah Syndergaard, and Jacob deGrom in consecutive games for a sweep … you are a person of greater faith than I. Good for you. And good for the Cubs.

I would say that the Cubs got to Jacob deGrom in a way that virtually no other teams do, but that wouldn’t be quite as accurate as saying that VICTOR CARATINI got to deGrom with two huge blasts.

Jon Lester struggled early in this one, but turned things around in a significant way, and wound up going six strong. The bullpen kept things smooth from there. Weird, it’s another three-run win, but it feels so different from last night.

SWEEEEEEEEP!!!

Full box score.
