Cubs 7, Reds 3 – 11 innings (4/24/15)

OSS: Bullpen bends but doesn’t break, bats wake up in the 11th Three Up 1. Mike Leake had the Cubs number for all seven innings he was in the game, save for two pitches that Anthony Rizzo and Chris Coghlan deposited in the seats. Batter-vs-pitcher matchup stats are dumb as predictive stats, but can be pretty entertaining. Coghlan is 9 for 11 with two homers and four doubles against...

Series Preview: Chicago Cubs (8-7) at Cincinnati Reds (8-8)

It’s been an eventful week in Cincinnati, which nearly reached Peak Reds before being eclipsed by whatever **** the Royals have been doing. Reds manager Bryan Price dropped a 77 f-bomb tirade at one of the Reds beat writers for actually reporting on the team instead of shilling/spreading false information for the team. I only regret that this wasn’t followed by Marty Brennaman...

Guessing the starting pitcher with most strikeouts per nine innings early on in the season should not be too difficult.
