Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 83

New, comments

Two bad innings to start the game sent John Lackey to the top of the Goat list in Tuesday's 9-5 loss.

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 - Addison Russell (.229). He's on a bit of a podium tear at the moment; in the last 15 games he's had five podium appearances, four of which have been Heroes and three of which have been Superheroes.
  • Hero - Jeimer Candelario (.097). For the second time in three games a podium spot is earned the painful way.
  • Sidekick (tie) - Anthony Rizzo and David Ross (.048). Rizzo earns a share with some late table-setting to lead off the seventh; Ross gets the other half with some unexpected speed on a bunt single. Yet another phrase you probably thought you'd never hear in Heroes and Goats history.

THE THREE GOATS:

  • Billy Goat - John Lackey (-.304). A friendly reminder: It's important to cover the plate on a passed ball.
  • Goat - Ben Zobrist (-.170). A rough 0-for-5 day including a couple of chances with runners on.
  • Kid - Travis Wood (-.093). The bloop double to start the seventh was unfortunate, but there was nothing bloop about the second double that he gave up.

RANKINGS THROUGH GAME 83: Russell continues his climb toward single-digit negatives while Lackey falls out of the starting rotation pack at the top of the chart.
