Here at CUB TRACKS NEWS AND NOTES™, we have nouvelles for you. The less said about Connor McGregor the better. Say no more, écuyer.

Kyle Hendricks, trying to get his season back on track, faced Minnesota rookie Joe Ryan. Ryan has some real stuff, but the Cubs got to him a little bit, again. Max Kepler took the Professor deep for a pair of coups de circuit. Professor might want to have a tête-à-tête with the baseball gods.

Hendricks did log a good-quality start. He just didn’t get enough &%$@?! runs, if you’ll excuse my French. He only got deux and the Twins doubled their pleasure with quatre. Mot de fil de jeux sans frontiers! Sacre bleu fromage!

Jeux Sans Frontières (English: Games Without Frontiers or Games Without Borders) was a Europe-wide television game show. In English-speaking countries, the show is also known as It’s a Knockout, the title of the BBC’s domestic version.

The Cubs got a little closer but the Twins added another run. 5-4 was the final. So the teams split the season series, each sweeping on the road.

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 on this page as sarcasm font. (In the comments section, use @ before and after your remarks @ to produce sarcasm font. In the text body. It doesn’t work in the headlines.)

Food for thought:

Thanks for reading le mots mauvais.
