Ten. It goes to 10 with a 3-0 shutout of the Phillies, engineered by Ryan Yarbrough, Dam Winkler, and Craig Kimbrel, and made possible by the big bats of Ian Happ and David Bote, who drove in runs, and Kris Bryant, who has been barreling the ball in some bad luck lately. Bryce Harper was 2 for 2 with two bases on balls but he was kept in the park. The Cubs’ other run scored on a fielding error by Rhys Hoskins on a hard-hit grounder by Willson Contreras.

Today, Jon Lester faces Aaron Nola in the middle game of the series. 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.
