Show Opener A 9 – Zip Rip
Cubs angelic as producers of the show opener with a 9-zip rip over the Los Angeles Angels.
Where do you start on a show opener like this one? I know, how about my whining for the return of Dexter Fowler. Sure enough, Epstein/Hoyer/Maddon decided to quell those shrill screams, and whining, and I do appreciate them acting on my advice.
Fowler got the top slot in the batting order, and it paid off with a 3 hit, 3 rbi show opener. The crown on the win, the gravy on the potatoes was Matt (oh great, here we go with the spelling bee) Sczur’s 3 run double in the 9th.
To the pitching, and Jake Arrieta. How many ways are there to say, he looked good? Really good. The stats back it. A good pen took over to hold the Angels, and the Cubs had the Angels shutout.
