Wild Card Game: Cubs 4 – Pirates 0

Cubs win the National League Wild Card game. I am way too excited to type of a recap on the game but man what a win.

Jake Arrieta was on fire today, he wasn’t as sharp as he usually is, but he still pitched a complete game shutout.

Kyle Shwarber started off the scoring by driving in Dexter Fowler with a single in the first.

In the top of the 3rd, Schwarber hit a home run driving Fowler to give the Cubs a 3-0 lead.

Then in the top of the 5th Dexter Fowler hit a home run giving the Cubs a 4-0 lead and the Cubs never looked back.

In the 7th, it got heated after Tony Watson hit Jake Arrieta the benches cleared and Sean Rodriguez was ejected after throwing a punch. He instantly became an internet meme after he was fighting with a Gatorade cooler.

Cubs won the game 4-0 nothing behind Arrieta’s complete game shutout and will face their rivals St. Louis Cardinals in the NLDS.

Bring on the Cardinals
