1 inning down, 1 RISP stranded. 2017 Cubs are here to stay.

This is the most stereotypical 2017 Cubs game. Lackey gave up a homer, Heyward made a great catch, Javy struck out on a slider, the Cubs stranded RISP numerous times, and Zobrist grounded into a double play.

They actually underestimated. The Cubs won 103 games and the World Series.

Did Mets fans boo Russell when he came up? That'd be pretty hilarious considering who's playing 3rd for the Mets right now.

Apparently the record for most double plays in a game by one team is 7 by the Giants in 1969.

2-2 with a homer, a walk, a double, and 3 RBI. In the 3rd inning.

I thought it was Fernando Tatis that did it twice in the same inning.

Bill Mueller did it twice in a game from both sides of the plate, which Happ could theoretically do.

"Hey baby, wanna do a Mark Bellhorn with me?"

The options are endless, seeing as how he's a switch-hitter.

bellhorn dinged from both sides of the plates in the same inning

Yeah but Happ wasn't up in the same inning as he homered, so I thought you meant grand slams from opposite sides of the plate in the same game, which was done by another former Cub infielder that won a World Series with Boston.

If the Cubs can cling to this 8-run lead, it will be their first road win since May 12.
