Cubs 6, Mariners 5: A Schwarbomb wins this war of attrition

Cubs 6, Mariners 5: A Schwarbomb wins this war of attrition

The Cubs blew two leads but won anyway. SEATTLE — So, you were worried about Kyle Schwarber? Don’t be, because he seems back on track. Despite two strikeouts — and there are going to be strikeouts for Kyle, because that’s the sort of hitter he is — his monstrous blast into the second deck at T-Mobile Park was the game-winner in a tense 6-5 Cubs victory over the Mariners that certainly was worth the entertainment dollar Tuesday evening. Daniel Descalso wasted no time giving the Cubs a 1-0 lead in this one [VIDEO]. Your browser does not support HTML5 video. That not only gave the...

Game #29, 4/28: Long Gone Game

Weaver faded early, Esky homered twice, and Duplantier dazzled in today’s 15 inning loss. I understand Descalso was visibly upset during the previous game’s fracas. So I was interested to see him lead-off today, turns out that excitement produced a lead-off strikeout for Descalso. The top half of 1st ended quickly after just 10 pitches by Luke Weaver. The Diamondbacks obliged Lefty Jose Quintana with an easy bottom of the 1st, as well. The top of the 2nd inning Bote doubled then moved to 3rd base on a fielder’s choice. But a pop fly ended the Cubs threat. The Diamondbacks answered...

Chicago Cubs vs. Arizona Diamondbacks preview, Saturday 4/27, 7:10 CT

The Cubs look to even up their series with the D-backs. Saturday notes: Javier Baez’ fourth-inning solo homer Friday means he has homered in five of his last nine games since April 16. Baez’ nine homers this season are second-most by any Cub in a single March/April. Alfonso Soriano hit 10 homers in the season’s opening month in 2011. In his last eight games since April 17, Kris Bryant is hitting .280 (7-for-25) with a .455 OBP and a .975 OPS with seven walks and only five strikeouts. Still worried about KB? Don’t be. Daniel Descalso is hitting .500 (8-for-16) with 10 RBI with...
