The simCubs earned meatloaf in Turner Field and will wrap up the set there later today, hoping to make a clean sweep of the series and head into the All-Star break with a head of steam. Maybe they can get some lamb chops for us while they’re out.

Kris Bryant was 3-for-5 with two doubles, Jason Heyward took a walk for a run, and Willson Contreras drove in an important run with a single to right, among other highlights. Alec Mills wasn’t too bad, and the Cubs’ bullpen held on for the win, Craig Kimbrel throwing his 30th save, good for a tie for the league lead.

Today, Yu Darvish stands tall against Mike Foltynewicz. Al will have more about that game in the game post at 2:30 p.m. CT, Friday, after which I’ll post the actual URL to the stream at 3 p.m. CT. Or you can catch the game at the BCB Media Center and also catch past games and game videos, if you want the full #simCubs experience.

And now, here’s Cub Tracks News and Notes. 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.
