Bullpen Session

Bullpen Session 5.12.19

CUBS CENTRAL
(23-14)
1st; +1.0
Streak: W

Willson walk-off in the 15th.

A merciful ending to a miserable game.

Marked the Cubs longest-ever home game against MIL.

4 hours, 56 minutes.

And raises one very important question:

Would you rather die of boredom or freeze to death at Wrigley Field?

Either applied Saturday.

Cubs-Brewers combined for:

10 double plays; ties an MLB record.

19 walks and 30 Ks.
0-for-13 with RISP.
20 men left on base.
15 pitchers used.
467 pitches thrown.
A total snooze fest.

Willson caught all 15 innings.

Will be interesting to see if he starts Sunday night.

Monday is an off day.

Cubs have won 11 of 13.

Thanks mostly to tremendous pitching.

The offense absolutely cannot score right now.

A top-to-bottom cold streak throughout the lineup.

3 walk-off HR in 5 games is wonderful luck.

And also playing with fire.

Hamels reliable as ever.

Another strong, seven-inning start.

His fourth no-decision in-a-row.

Chatwood continues to impress.

68 pitches over 4 innings, 3 BB, 7 K.

A life-saver for the bullpen.

Rubbermatch Sunday night.

Score some dang runs, Cubs…

Score. Some. Runs.
