Twin vs Cubs: Game 3 Thread

A 3-game winning streak, the chance for another sweep, and yet another new batting order for the Cubs. Statistically, the Cubs offense does better for Jon Lester than they do any other starting pitcher for the Cubs. Another "W" today? I think so,

Minnesota Twins (35-44) @ Chicago Cubs (46-35)

Lance Lynn (5-6, 4.81) vs. Jon Lester (10-2, 2.18)

Cubs taking on an old foe, as former Cardinals pitcher Lynn starting for Twins. Lester aiming to carry his June successes into July. Cubs gunning for sweep of Twins.

B2 — Lester with a three-run bomb. Big Jon didn't have to bunt with 2 men on. He went yard to deep center.

B2 || Twins 1, Cubs 3

And 402' nonetheless. First we had the "SCHWARBOMB" now we have the Lester Laser!

E2 — Cubs tack on 8 runs & chase Lynn from game in incredibly fruitful/long inning. Cubs have already scored 32 runs in this series. It's like the antithesis of the Reds series from last week.

E2 || Twins 1, Cubs 8

B5 — Happ's home run (437 feet) was the 3rd-longest of his career & 3rd-longest for Cubs this season.

B5 || Twins 3, Cubs 10

This is a prime example of Joe Maddon not being able to get out of his own way. Absolutely inexcusable that he's left Maples in this long just make it pay off that the Cubs opted to call him up. Maddon's recent terrible bullpen decisions have really cut into what has been a solid stretch of hitting for the Cubs.

Morrow bails out Maddon with 4-out save. Yes, he bailed out Maddon. The Maples disaster was an example of terrible managing. Regardless, really impressive 3-game sweep by Cubs on the offensive end. Bullpen issues have continued to hinder the Cubs, though. Pitching, in general, hasn't been great. Cubs have allowed 5 or more runs in 5 straight games.
