These Texas Rangers aren't leading the AL West for nothin'.
There's talent over there.
But once again, Cub pitching shut 'em down with Jason Hammel's best start in awhile.
And maybe his problem really is cramping.
Back in May vs the Dodgers he had to leave after 3 with leg cramps.
Then in July vs Atlanta, he had to leave with cramping in his hand.
So Cubs' team physician Steven Adams told him to eat potato chips.
Something about potassium and sodium, plus they taste good.
Whatever dude, it worked yesterday as he shut down the Rangers for 6 innings of 3-hit, 1-run ball.
Then Adam Warren, Travis Wood and Hector Rondon put the clamps on for the final 9 outs.
Plus, Anthony Rizzo smacked a double off Yu Darvish to knock in 2, and for the 2nd day in a row Matt Szczur RBI'd one too.
Cubs 3, Rangers 1.
How much better do you feel?
Now, I can't believe I freaked out just before the ASG break.
But if there ain't ups and downs during the course of the summer, then it'd be boring so...
Anyway, another 1:20 (the rain may have something to say about that) with Lackey vs. Cole Hamels.
PS: HEY YOU GUYS WHO MAKE JAY'S POTATO CHIPS. MAKE THIS PRODUCT!
