Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 67

New, 7 comments

A career strikeout night for Kyle Hendricks pushed him to the top of the Hero class in Sunday's 10-5 win over the Pirates.

The powder blue is kind of a cool look, if you ask me.

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 - Kyle Hendricks (.220). As Al mentioned in his recap, Hendricks' 12 strikeouts on Sunday night were a career high, shattering his previous record of nine which he set twice on July 22, 2015 and September 28, 2015.
  • Hero - Anthony Rizzo (.160). He's hitting .333 with an 1.166 OPS in his last 10 games.
  • Sidekick - Javier Baez (.092). A very nice 3-for-4 night with his homer in the second going a long way to securing the final spot on the Heroes.

THE THREE GOATS:

  • Billy Goat - Adam Warren (-.066). The three runs that scored after he entered in the seventh got him here. The run and three hits that he gave up in the ninth may not have made a WPA dent, but they certainly didn't help matters by any means.
  • Goat - Miguel Montero (-.041). Once again Captain Clutch fell short, popping out to end the first with two on.
  • Kid - Ben Zobrist (-.039). The only player in the starting lineup -- other than Hendricks -- to miss the hit parade.

RANKINGS THROUGH GAME 67: Hendricks and Rizzo both climb back toward double-digit positives while Warren continues his slide further into negative territory.
