It's another landslide Superhero game with Starlin Castro running away with it easily.

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 - Starlin Castro (.404). As Al wrote in his recap, it's Castro's first six-RBI game since he did it in his major-league debut on May 7, 2010.
  • Hero - Anthony Rizzo (.198). A pretty eventful day for him with a couple of hits and a couple of plunkings.
  • Sidekick - Tommy Hunter (.096). Got the Cubs out of a huge jam caused by somebody to be seen on the Goat chart momentarily.

THE THREE GOATS: And for the third game in a row, there's a bump on the Goat podium as Dan Haren's -.073 hitting is moved out...

  • Kid - Dan Haren (-.039). But there was no escaping the podium as his pitching ends up taking the vacated spot.
  • Goat - Addison Russell (-.061). Not a bad day, going 1-for-4 with a walk, but the dreaded bases-loaded whiff put him on the second step.
  • Billy Goat - Zac Rosscup (-.130). Two batters faced, two walks, one lead given up. That's what's known as a bad day at the office.
RANKINGS THROUGH GAME 147 ("x" indicates player not on active roster):
Rizzo just continues his tear up the chart, breaking through the plus-60 barrier as if it weren't even there.
