Brewers 15, Cubs 2: They played a baseball game at Wrigley Field Saturday and it was awful

This recap will be mercifully short.

The Cubs lost to the Brewers 15-2 Saturday afternoon.

Honestly, I have nothing else to say about this game. It was a disaster almost from beginning to end. Joe Maddon pretty much said the same thing:

If it’s too hard to read you can click here for a larger version.

All any baseball team can do after a game like that is understand that tomorrow’s another day, that this game counts for only one loss, and that the Cubs still maintain a three-game lead in the N.L. Central. Hopefully the Pirates will beat the Cardinals tonight.

The weather was nice, so there was that.

Sunday afternoon, the Cubs will try to salvage one game from this three-game series against the Brewers. Kyle Hendricks will go for the Cubs and Zach Davies for the Brewers.

Seriously, that’s it. Got nothing more to say. Get ‘em tomorrow.

No, seriously. This is the end of the recap.
