The Cubs flashed some power last night to go along with yet another solid performance from one of their starters. This time it was Jon Lester benefiting from three Cubs dingers as he breezed through the Angels lineup en route to picking up his first win of the season. Dexter Fowler, Matt Szczur, and Anthony Rizzo all found the seats as the Cubs torched the Angels 6-1 to move their record to 2-0 for the first time since 1995.
The Cubs barely hung on tonight in Milwaukee, and they did it with the long ball. FOUR DINGERS!! Anthony Rizzo, Dexter Fowler, Starlin Castro, and Jorge Soler all left the yard with authority tonight, loud noises for sure. I’ll add them as they become available from MLB.
What an amazing day in Denver. The Cubs trailed all day, and couldn’t come up with a big hit all day until the 9th, then BOOOOOM! Best win in a very long time, heading back home 3-2 on the season.
