It’s another series loss, but at least the Cubs salvaged the finale. May or may not wind up mattering in the final accounting, but it certainly made my Sunday better.
Corbin Burnes is gonna get his. That’s just kinda the situation with him right now. The stuff is overwhelmingly nasty, and he’s gotten so consistent. You just hope you can run into a couple and get a great pitching performance of your own.
Sure enough, the Cubs got a Patrick Wisdom homer, a Seiya Suzuki RBI double, and a brilliant birthday performance from Marcus Stroman:

Some traffic on the bases for Rowan Wick and David Robertson, but they got the big whiffs when they needed them, and the key pieces of the Cubs’ bullpen continue to pitch very well.
Good win before an off-day. Now a bit of a reset (mentally for me, I mean … ).
