How was THAT for a Sunday afternoon?
Cubs take 2 of 3 in Milwaukee with the Brewers now 2 1/2 out.
John Lackey... come on man, what do you want from a 5th starter?
Yeah he gave up a 2-run homer, and that's it, over 6.
I'll take that any day.
Then Grimm/Rondon/Davis finish it off.
Top of the 6th the Cubs get four 2-out hits in a row (is Contreras the fastest catcher in baseball?) to take a 2-nothin' lead.
Then the Milwaukee homer from Domingo Santana ties it.
Nothing is cooler than somebody stepping in for another and succeeding.
Anthony Rizzo's back had stiffened up, and Maddon puts Victor Caratini at 1st base.
The backup catcher.
Top of the 7th, Caratini hits a 420 footer - his first homer in the Bigs - and the Cubs take the lead back.
Kris Bryant hit his 20th of 2017 in the 8th and you and me go light some charcoal, listen to the rest on the AM.
