The cubes win again. I could really get used to this. I have, actually.
Yu Darvish had everything that worked tonight, including a striker without six chances. Not only until his only Justin Smoak homer in the 7th that Darvish gave up a hit or a runway, but he was very close to perfection.
Rowan Wick had the opportunity to save on this, presumably because Jeremy Jeffress threw last night, and finished the job, even though things got a little tougher in the 9th. He remains very clearly A Boy.
A relatively quiet night for the bats in general, who placed a good amount of traffic at the bases against old friend Brett Anderson, but did not greatly delay the path of injury. Even the two runs in the 6th could have been entirely more with one hit or two at a time. Hey, it̵7;s not like four runs is a terrible night. And he was very much with Darwish on the hill.
The complete result of the box.
