Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 114

New, 19 comments

Chris Coghlan comes through with two big homers to take the top of the Hero podium on Friday afternoon.

He's hiding a bit, but there's the Friday Superhero. However, will he be the Friday Hickman winner?

A huge tip of the cap goes to the bullpen as well for this line: 5⅔ innings pitched, two hits, two walks, eight strikeouts. That's how you get the job done. Hickman voting should be pretty interesting.

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 - Chris Coghlan (.331). "We lost the lead again? Fine... I'll hit another homer."
  • Hero / Sidekick #1 - Justin Grimm (.200). He's making a lot of batters look foolish lately with his offspeed stuff.
  • Hero / Sidekick #2 - Hector Rondon (.200). And nobody had a heart attack during his save!

THE THREE GOATS:

  • Billy Goat - Kyle Hendricks (-.442). There are days where you just don't have it. This outing was most definitely one of those.
  • Goat - Miguel Montero (-.103). Had a couple of opportunities to keep rallies going but couldn't capitalize.
  • Kid - Chris Denorfia (-.079). Pretty much a garden-variety 0-for-4, enhanced a little bit with three of the four outs coming as the leadoff batter in the inning.
RANKINGS THROUGH GAME 114 ("x" indicates player not on active roster):
Nothing much different at the top of the chart, but the lower end gets busy with Denorfia and Hendricks slipping toward and into the bottom five.
