While the top four batters in the order went 1-for-19, the last five combined to go 12-for-19 with three homers and eight RBIs. Omar Narvaez went 3-for-3 with an RBI and has recorded seven hits in 11 at-bats over his last three contests.
The model also knows Chicago squandered leads in the ninth, 10th and 11th innings against the White Sox on Sunday before succumbing in 12. The Cubs registered only five hits in the setback, with Christopher Morel recording one of them - an RBI single in the 10th frame.
