The simCubs brought home a victory behind Yu Darvish and his hundred-eleventy pitches and a 4-out save by Brad Wieck, backed by long balls from Javier Baez (13), Jason Heyward (11), and Kyle Schwarber (14). Marlins starter Pablo Lopez stymied the Cubs until the 4-run sixth and was tagged with the loss.

All three of the Cubs homers and several of Yu’s 10 strikeouts are featured in the highlights.

Today, the simCubs will be trying to preserve the meatloaf against the simMarlins in the final game of a three-game series at beautiful simWrigley simField. Jordan Yamamoto (5-2, 2.92) will face the Professor, Kyle Hendricks (6-2, 2.76), and his experience, in the Ricketts’ castle made of sand.

Al will have more in the game post (at 2:30 p.m. CT, for our 3 p.m. start). I’ll drop the specific URL to the contest in the game thread, but you can lurk at the BCB Media Center and catch it there as well. All past games and highlights reels are available there too, if you want the full #simCubs experience.

And now, 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.
