The Cubs sim team downed the Brew Crew, with a pair of Jasons and their bats creating a horrorshow for the home team as the visitors tallied thirteen hits and ten runs on their way to an eventful victory.

Kyle Hendricks performed a splendid solo effort until Brock Holt interrupted his melodies with a no-doubt solo bomb to right, after which he got out and then yielded to Brad Wieck, who was largely ineffective but managed not to set the Cubs’ second home on fire.

Game two box score.

Cub Tracks was there on the spot as winning pitcher Hendricks was heard to say ‘darn’ as Wieck surrendered a run-scoring hit. Javy Javy’d and Ian Happ had some good at-bats in the game, though his line won’t reflect that.

A good time was had by all, and we’ll do it again today as the Cubs try to take the rubber game. Al will have the game post up at 2:30 Central and I’ll drop the link in a half hour later. We’re working on the signal issue. And we’re still the only Cubs page actually broadcasting the game live.

Welcome to the future. Sorry about the mess.

In the mundane timeline, real life insisted on happening, and real baseball stuff, and so here’s Cub Tracks News and Notes, the only links column that really matters. As always, * means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and Chrome). {$} means paywall. {$} means limited views. Italics are often used here as sarcasm font.

Food for thought:

Thanks for reading. Rants and raves at medium.
