Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 1, Twins 0 – September 18, 2020

Chicago Cubs

The Greatest Leadoff Hitter of All-Time walked to lead the game off for the Cubs. Then he stole second base. Then he scored on a single.

And that Anthony Rizzo run in the first inning was the last run of the entire game.

Kyle Hendricks was a beast in this one, as the Twins just looked hopeless up there. Things were a little dicey in the 9th for Jeremy Jeffress, who didn’t have his control, but he got the job done (with some help from a beautiful double play up the middle by Nico Hoerner and Javy Báez)

Offensively, the Cubs continue to struggle so very badly against lefties. I mean, Rich Hill hadn’t gone more the 5.0 innings in any of his starts this year, and he just went 7.0 innings of one-run ball against the Cubs. It’s a problem.

Good thing the Cubs definitely won’t have to face any lefty starters in the postseason, right?

I guess they’ll just need more of this from Kyle Hendricks.
