2018 Cubs – Fifteenth Ten Games

Sshhh!  Don’t spoil the ending!

Young Lackey subbing for Quintana

Win #84 – Quintana – On this day, he went 6.2 innings, giving up only 3 hits, 0 runs, and 2 walks with 7 Ks. Jose didn’t have an amazing year, but he was better than what people gave him credit for.  The ERA  was close to 4, but he has 13 wins on the season.

Confused as to why his cap has no logo

Win #85 – Baez – It wouldn’t be a ten game stretch if Baez didn’t appear.  3-4, a double, a solo homer, 3 RBI, and an intentional walk filled out the scorecard in a key win in a makeup game against Nats with Brewers inching closer.

Hammel for Hamels again

Win #86 – Cole Hamels – Nothing outstanding on offense, so we go to pitching and Hamels’ 6.2 inning, 8 hits, 2 ER (both off of solo homers), 2 walks, 7 Ks, and a pickoff of Hamilton at first.


Win #87 – Lester – Near the end of the year, Jon returned to form.  He went 7 innings, giving up 2 hits, 2 BB, a nice 9 strikeouts, 0 runs in a 1-0 win.

Pitching stretch continues

Win #88 – Hendricks – So close to the complete game.  Kyle had one of his best outings with 8.2 innings, 3 hits (2 in the 9th), 1 ER (solo homer in the 9th), only 1 walk, and 8Ks.
