Holy mackerel! The Cubs' offense continued its recent tear at Wrigley on Friday, as they crushed the Brewers 15-2 behind a quality start from Kyle Hendricks (6 IP, 2 ER, 6 K), 17 hits, 4 homers, 5 RBI from Jake Marisnick, and three-hit days from Nico Hoerner, Javier Baez, and Kris Bryant.

KB's season average is up to .313, and his OPS is up to 1.041. The Cubs have now tallied 55 runs in their last six games -- compared to 34 in their first 13 games.

On the defensive side, the North Siders have cut their 2020 error rate in half so far in 2021:  0.50 errors/game in '20 and 0.26 errors/game in '21 -- second-best in MLB.

The series continues on Saturday at the Friendly Confines. 19 games down, 143 to go.

Go Cubs go!
