Cubs vs. Angels: Hendricks vs. Stratton (Game 14)
CHC (5-8): RHP Kyle Hendricks (0-2)
LAA (7-7): RHP Chris Stratton (0-1)
First pitch 1:20pmCDT
The Cubs send Kyle Hendricks to the mound for his turn to be good after strong starts from Quintana and Hamels. The righty has lost his first two starts and looked generally out-of-whack. We may see Pujols again; he homered yesterday and Justin Bour is 1-14 against Hendricks. Zack Cozart is 4-12 with a HR against him.
Chris Stratton made 26 starts last year for the Giants, with a 4.43 xFIP and 5.09 ERA. In his first two starts this season, he's struck out only 2 while walking 6 (8.1 IP). The Cubs offense will try to show off their discipline and maybe some more of the power we saw yesterday.
The wind should help left-handed batters today.

schwarb set the cubs team record for fastest to 100 by a cub a bit less than a week ago. bryant would have won a couple MVP awards in a row the past couple years.

200th home run of the season by KB probably would have set some kind of record too

the inital graphic was KB #200, but i was like...hold on...
it was technically true in the loosest sense of the phrase.

That would have been pretty cool if it had been KB’s 200th home run in less than five full seasons!

Funny (ha ha) to remember that at one point in this game Yu had retired 12 straight Giants

Oof. The lead off walk - horrible. That second hit allowed (which tied the game) on the ankle high fastball - tuff luck.

d.holland still sucks.
cubs tied this one out of sheer suck going on both sides of this game. i'm waiting for the cubs to lose this one 18-17 in a few hours.

Cubs need their three-hole hitter to start stepping up at the plate and do something crazy like driving in the two-hole hitter

Somebody wake up Grandpa Joe and remind him that having Holland face righties i— any righty — is a no-no
