And on this day... a Cubs Twitter icon dies.

The celebration of an accomplishment that hasn't happened in almost 50 years.

Writer's Note: The daily selections of the three Heroes and three Goats are based solely on the top three and bottom three WPA scores for the game. The selections are not based on my subjective opinion.

THE THREE HEROES:

  • Superhero - Dexter Fowler (.046). The only Cub on the day to reach base, other than Anthony Rizzo hitting into a fielder's choice.
  • Hero - Travis Wood (.016). And with the above being true, that meant that if you pitched and didn't give up a run...
  • Sidekick - Neil Ramirez (.001). ...you made the podium.  Sorry, James Russell.

THE THREE GOATS:

  • Billy Goat - Jake Arrieta (-.137). Aside from that third inning, it was a pretty decent outing for him.
  • Goat - Kris Bryant (-.084). Takes the second spot by virtue of hitting behind the only guy to get on base.
  • Kid - Jorge Soler (-.055). The only thing that kept Rizzo from this spot as the three-hitter was his stolen base in the first.
