Cubs score plenty. David Bote has a real nice game. Anthony Rizzo, too. And Kyle Schwarber... and let’s not forget our friend Yu Darvish. After being plunked following hitting two long balls, Bote didn’t look to be trying to start anything, if those heart-taps mean what they are supposed to. But yeah, Bill Welke, good job keeping things cool. Taylor Davis was getting ready to turn on THE STARE. I could feel it. Torey Lovullo denies throwing at Bote on purpose.

In other news, Daniel Descalso clearly has greater range than Ben Zobrist at this point in their careers. Just ask Wilmer Flores. All this and Caleb Joseph, too!

Al will have details in the recap. Here’s today’s Cubs News and Notes. As always, * means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and Chrome).
