Bring your alibis... the best thing the Cubs can do now is to split.

They will always be bums to me, Duke Snider. And I wouldn’t want to wish anyone any else harm, but I have to admit that I was hoping that CB Bucknor would be unable to continue. He’s not the best ball-and-strike judge in the business and I would have preferred a better eye.

Bucknor didn’t have anything to do with the parade of long balls, though. Kyle Hendricks and Rich Hill must have shared the tiny tweezers. Interesting ball game, punctuated with strange-looking plays like Addison Russell’s finishing stretch, the botched double play, and Rich Hill’s RBI single. Kyle Garlick probably needs more seasoning. Hendricks made an early exit — Al’s recap will have full details. Kyle Garlick probably needs more seasoning.
