The Cubs thrashing the Phillies 17-2 suuure does alot to help you forget the last couple rotten losses to rotten teams, doesn't it?
2 homers each from Anthony Rizzo and Tommy LaStella, and 2 more from Kris Bryant and Ben Zobrist... what a night.
You know when you're driving somewhere unfamiliar and you have Google maps on and the lady's voice is giving directions and she says, "Turn right in 1000 feet" and you go "WHAT? How far is 1000 feet?!" and you go a block and then another and another and FINALLY she says "Turn Right."?
I HATE that cause I just don't have a knack for distance at all.
But last night the Cubs hit a total of 2,432 feet of homer.
Oh that's just so sweet.
But anyway, Kyle Hendricks.
Yeah the homer in the first.
But 7 innings in 90 pitches? Oh man is that's perfect.
And then the two hits from his own bat in the top of the 7th - a single and double and driving in 2 runs while scoring one too?
And THEN going out to pitch the bottom half?
This Phillies team is about the worst in baseball, so of course the Cubs should win and of course Hendricks should have his way with them, but the game before these Phils didn't look like the worst.
Ah whatever, a really nice win on the same night the Cards and Brewers do the same, so it all stays the same in the standings.
Okay John Lackey, I recommend concentrating on throwing strikes and if by chance you get on base... stay there.
