Here at CUB TRACKS NEWS AND NOTES™, we like to keep things brief on the principle that it makes us appear wise. Unless we feel a rant. But we don’t mind a little informing with the entertaining.

And boy, was that entertaining. Three homers in the fourth took care of Brett Anderson’s no-hit bid, with Willson Contreras’ drive scoring Ian Happ, who had walked, and Javier Baez and David Bote going back-to-back for solo blasts. Anthony Rizzo might have had one if he’d had another biscuit for breakfast as his drive to the right-field corner died on the track and was caught.

Trevor Williams kept up his strong, economical pitching after that and was perfect for five full innings before bending a bit in the sixth and allowing the Brew Crew to load the bases, though they didn’t score at that point. Omar Narvaez homered in the seventh off of Jason Adam and made things interesting. There were more heroics later — Al will have full game details in his recap.
