OSS: To quote RtR from this game’s comment thread, I can’t decide what’s sadder: The Cubs’ lineup without Rizzo or the Marlins’ lineup without Stanton.
1. Kyle Hendricks was dealing today, striking out six and pitching into the eighth inning. He only had one stretch of trouble when the Marlins got two men on with no outs in the seventh, but he managed to put...
