Marcus Stroman Did Something Yesterday That the Cubs Haven’t Seen in 32 Years

Chicago Cubs

For the second straight start, his first two of the season, Marcus Stroman threw 6.0 scoreless innings for the Chicago Cubs. This time around, he didn’t have his best control initially, but he got through the first inning and then more or less cruised, netting six strikeouts (three walks, two hits) and eight groundouts. It was exactly what you want to see from Stroman – again.

There was also a little history in there for Stroman, thanks to his second-straight outstanding start to open the season. With consecutive 6.0+ inning scoreless starts to begin the season, Stroman became the first Cubs pitcher to pull that off since Mike Bielecki back in 1991.
