Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 100

New, 23 comments

What better way to celebrate the 100th game of the season than by setting a franchise record.

And on top of that, it's the first time that the Cubs have had meat loaf at Wrigley Field since the beginning of July.

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 - Jon Lester (.306). No doubt about the Superhero in this game.
  • Hero / Sidekick #1 (tie) - Anthony Rizzo (.146). Snapped his season-long streak of games between Hero podium appearances at 11. His previous high -- or low, possibly -- was 10 games in the month of June.
  • Hero / Sidekick #2 (tie) - Hector Rondon (.146). Sent the fans home happy with a relatively uneventful save.

THE THREE GOATS:

  • Billy Goat - Kris Bryant (-.097). An interesting day for him, with all four of his plate appearances coming with a runner on first.
  • Goat - Jonathan Herrera (-.077). Even more interesting, all three of his came with a runner on second.
  • Kid - Chris Coghlan (-.052). None of his came with a runner on third, though. Way to kill a rally, Chris.
RANKINGS THROUGH GAME 100 ("x" indicates player not on active roster):
Rizzo puts positive points on the board for the first time since July 18, while Bryant falls into a tie for third place on the chart.
