Enhanced Box Score: Braves 13, Cubs 4 – April 18, 2021

Chicago Cubs

The Braves decided to return the homer party favor on the Cubs tonight, going deep five times, including four in the first inning.

Kyle Hendricks, who hasn’t pitched in a bit and does frequently find himself giving up a bit more hard contact in the first, kept falling behind Braves hitters, and then kept getting tagged. He managed to straighten out enough to give the Cubs a few innings from there, but the damage was mostly done. Alec Mills didn’t have it, either, so the damage, uh, got even more done. And then Ryan Tepera came into a bad situation and made it worse. Damage. Yeah. Lots of it.

Anthony Rizzo went deep a couple times, which was very nice to see. Outside of that, there was little nice to see here on Sunday Night Baseball.

Full box score.
