Ian Happ was instrumental in his team’s 13-3 triumph over the Dodgers. The left fielder went 4-for-6 with two home runs to pace the Cubs’ offense. He also scored three times and drove in four. With the win, Chicago pushed its record to 18-17.
Happ made an early impact for Chicago when he stroked his 7th home run of the season. The 3-run home run, which came in the top of the first, put the Cubs on top and made it an 8-0 laugher.
“I’m just happy to help the team win,” Happ told the Chicago Bulletin, which is definitely not the virtual version of the Chicago Tribune.
Alex Wood isn’t off to a great start in his second go ’round with the Dodgers. He recorded just two outs and allowed seven runs on seven hits. His season ERA is an ugly 8.13.
