Chicago Cubs

Chicago Cubs vs. Cleveland Indians preview, Wednesday 9/16, 7:15 CT

GOOD FOR YU: In last night’s third inning, the Indians scored two runs both originally ruled as earned.

The official scorer has changed this to one run earned, one unearned which adjusts Yu Darvish ’s season ERA to 1.86.

PLOINK: The Cubs last night were hit by a pitch four times, including consecutive batters to end the game in a walk-off win, the first time that’s happened at Wrigley Field since the first game of a doubleheader July 18, 1948 vs. the Phillies when Robin Roberts hit Phil Cavarretta to load the bases, then hit Andy Pafko to force home the winning run in a 3-2 victory.

Jon Lester had five starts in a row where he had been pretty bad, but righted his ship with six shutout innings against the Brewerslast Friday in Milwaukee .

He also had a strong outing against the Indians August 11 in Cleveland — six innings, three hits, one run, four strikeouts.

Aaron Civale has had a pretty good year overall for the Tribe, though over his last four starts: 5.25 ERA, 1.417 WHIP, four home runs allowed in 24 innings.
