The simCubs took it on the road and 10-4, good buddy, they came away with a victory.

Jason Heyward, Kris Bryant, Jason Kipnis, and Javier Baez swatted deep flies and gave Jesus Luzardo his eighth win after Jon Lester faltered in search of his 11th for the second start in a row. Dan Winkler and Brad Wieck finished up as the home team was held scoreless after surging to an early lead, and Anthony DeSclafani wasn’t much better than Jon, surrendering three bombs, including Kipnis’ clout that left the building.

Thank you, Jason. Thank you very much.
