My favorite nugget : King Felix went 3-1 with 43 K’s and a 1.80 ERA in 40 IP. Even better, when pitching at Angels Stadium, the location of tonight’s game, Hernandez had a 1.42 ERA while striking out 22 batters in 19 innings of work.

Justin Hartling confirms what anyone with eyes has already been watching this season, The Cubs are pounding people.

I enjoyed this one : Kris Bryant is 4-10 with two homers versus The Reds this season.
