Improved Box Score: Cubs 4, Pirates 3 – August 1, 2020


The Cubs starting pitcher dominates, the bats are doing enough, the bullpen makes him really close. Ah. The rhythms are already established.Tyler Chatwood was on one tonight. He got into trouble in 7th emptying the tank, but for over 6 innings he was in control, the cutter looked even better than last time around (if possible), and he had 20 ( !) Nighttime puffs, compensation for 11 strikeouts up to 6.2. Just two walks and three hits. It was brilliant.

In that 7th, although he did get a few outs, he also gave up a few single mehs and a 3-2 walk to charge the bases. Luckily, Jeremy Jeffress has come for a bouncer and put an end to the threat. (So ​​ends the positive feedback from the bullpen.)

Even more fortunately, Kyle Schwarber hit a two-run homer in the 8th to give the Cubs a four-run lead before the 9th, because Kyle Ryan came in and retired from a two-run homerun after recording just one out. . One double later and it was Rowan Wick to clean things up. Even he allowed this race to score and put the tie on the base, so it’s always an adventure.

Score from the full box.
