The Cubs four-game win streak was snapped on Tuesday night, with a 6-1 loss at home to the Phillies. Jake Arrieta made his first return to Wrigley since leaving in free agency, not pitching, but was honored before the game on the video board.
Kris Bryant: 2 for 4, 1 R
Anthony Rizzo: 2 for 4, 1 RBI
Cory Mazzoni: 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 SO
How it Happened
Kyle Hendricks did not have his best stuff on Tuesday, giving up five earned runs over the first three innings that put the Cubs in an early 5-0 hole. The offense was there with 8 hits all off Phillies starter Zach Eflin but could never capitalize. The Cubs lone run came in the eighth inning off Anthony Rizzo’s RBI double that made it 5-1 Phillies late. Philadelphia added another run in the ninth off Randy Rosario as they went on to win 6-1.
One Great Moment
Javy Baez is a walking human highlight reel. Really, Baez makes the most ridiculous plays on offense and defense in what seems like every day. The latest “Javy Moment” was in the ninth inning with no outs when he ran up against the wall separating the seats from the field down the third base line, tumbling into the stands somehow making the catch and recording the out. Check out this “One Great Moment” of the game.
