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 - Kris Bryant (.670). Another fun fact: Bryant is the first Cub hitter this season to post a WPA above .600.  There were seven games last season in which someone broke the .600 mark as a hitter.
  • Hero - Anthony Rizzo (.133). Meanwhile, Rizzo was busy having a nice night of his own: 2-for-3, two walks, and a bomb to right.
  • Sidekick - Jason Heyward (.103). Two days in a row on the Hero podium for Heyward? What's going on here?!

THE THREE GOATS:

  • Billy Goat - Jake Arrieta (-.194). Only one member of the starting rotation remains that has not yet seen the top of the Goat podium this season. Two BCB points if you can name him without looking in the charts.
  • Goat - Miguel Montero (-.148). Couldn't find his way on to the hit board as the Cubs pounded out 17 of them.
  • Kid - Ben Zobrist (-.107). He did have a double on the night, but it counted about just as much as Addison Russell -- who was also hitless on the night -- reaching base thanks to an error by Jose Peraza.

RANKINGS THROUGH GAME 75: Bryant takes a major step back toward single-digit negatives while a new leader emerges at the top of the pack.
