Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 41

Brian Kersey

Where did THIS guy come from?

Regardless of who found him and how, can we keep him as opposed to that other guy that wore number 36? I'll pitch in some cash.

Well done today, Mr. Jackson.  Very impressive stuff.

THE THREE HEROES:

  • Superhero - Edwin Jackson. If my math is correct, today's start was the best game score Jackson has had since August 30, 2012.
  • Hero - Welington Castillo. The two-run double provided the insurance for today's...
  • Sidekick - Starlin Castro. The 14th time he's been in the Hero divison, more than any other Cub.

THE THREE GOATS: A tough-luck group today. But someone has to get the award daily, even if all things go well.

  • Big Goat - Chris Coghlan. First-time entrant into the Goats, thanks to the 0-for-2 day with the groundout in the second inning that stranded Darwin Barney at second. The hitless day was all that separated him from...
  • Goat - Anthony Rizzo. Despite the single in the sixth, the groundout in the first with Emilio Bonifacio on second landed him in the middle of the Goats today.
  • Kid - Mike Olt. Two whiffs and a groundout, but the game was already sealed by the time he came to the plate for the first time.
