That's kinda scary, thinking about Andrew McCutchen suddenly coming out of his slump in the next couple days.
So far this season, he's only got 11 hits.
Below the Mendoza.
You just do not want to wake that guy up...
It'll be up to Jason Hamel today to keep him quiet.
Trouble in St. Louis with Adam Wainwright going down with an achilles.
Probably done for the season.
With the Cubs looking like they're for real, you really hate to see that happen.
I'd like our favorite team to be judged on an even playing field, and beating Wainwright would be a good measuring stick.
So, too bad but if history tells us anything there's about 3 more Wainwrights down in their system so...
Lastly, the Reds.
Yesterday's game was just a joy to watch with the Big Inning and young Addison Russell clearing the bases with a massive double.
Jake Arrieta - looked like no hitter time but then he had the couple hiccups innings...and then in the 6th he gets the ground out and strikes out 2.
No biggie though.
Zac Rosscup with the huge Votto K leaving Hamilton stranded at 3rd.
Then Strop and Rondon, kinda automatic.
Cubs 5 Reds 2.
10 Cub wins, 2nd place, pretty sweet.
