Sunday evening at Wrigley Field, the Cubs were crushed by the Braves 13-4. Thoroughly, completely, utterly crushed.
Before I get to a recap of sorts, about that score:

Another curiosity about that: The Braves’ boxscore totals from this game (38-13-14-13, AB-R-R-BI) exactly matched the Cubs’ from Saturday’s game.
Rather than give you my own recap to this rout, I thought I’d let you put together your own. Here you go! (NOTE!

Give Anthony Rizzo credit. He was having fun out there with “Frederick” Freeman [VIDEO].
(Per baseball-reference, Freeman’s given name is, in fact, Frederick.)
Rizzo also hit home runs.
That’s all I’ve got for this one. At least it didn’t rain on this series. That’s not likely going to be the case for the Mets series coming up.
The weather, and the baseball, just have to get better.
Right? Right? RIGHT?
