What a performance.
Kyle Hendricks was sooooo good last night.
A no-hitter all the way into the 9th before Jeremy Hazelbaker got ahold of a mistake change and hit it out.
Before then... COME ON MAN, how entertaining and fun and everything you love about baseball was that game?
The gloves were incredible - Addison Russell's sliding scoop and strong throw to nail Jhonny Peralta elicited a couple "Oh My-s" from Jim Deshaies (and a couple "HOLY... okay you don't need me to print that).
And Jason Heyward falling into the stands to catch Hazelbaker's foul ball...
In any other year we'd all be saying man oh man those plays are legendary.
This year, it's kinda the D.
The Cubs are just so impossibly good with their gloves.
Not gonna talk about fat blue who tossed Joe Maddon because... why should I?
Too much good happened last night.
Ben Zobrist had a gorgeous left-handed homer plus a double - Dexter Fowler went 2 for 4 with another dinger - Anthony Rizzo with the big 2-out single that drove in Baez...
And the Cubs win 4-nothin' to bring the magic number down to 3.
(I joyfully tweeted this last night):
Anyway, just another night from the Greatest Summer Ever.
