So that’s a sweep. A double-header sweep as opposed to a series sweep, but with Brandon Woodruff and Corbin Burnes on the way, the series sweep looms, too.
With an hour and a half rain delay mixed in, it wound up a very long day for the Cubs, who got a big day from Patrick Wisdom and a couple hits from Johneshwy Fargas, but that was about it. Alec Mills started with 2.1 scoreless before the rains came, but the bullpen allowed a six spot in the 5th to let this one get away.
The game saw the loooooong-awaited return of Rowan Wick, who pitched a very quick 1-2-3 7th inning.
