Watch: Quintessential Quintana Quiets Questions
According to ESPN’s Game Score statistic, the 90 Jose Quintana posted in Sunday’s start ranks as the best outing for any Cubs pitcher this year (Jon Lester’s complete game against the Giants was the previous high at 85). Q’s pitching against the Brewers reminded many of why the Cubs traded top prospects Eloy Jimenez and Dylan Cease to acquire his services.
It was a dominant performance from the Colombian left-hander, and it couldn’t have come at a better time for the Cubs. Here are some highlights from Sunday’s W, along with some words from Q’s catcher, Willson Contreras.
Pure domination from @jose_quintana24. @Cubs‘ magic number to clinch the Central is now just 2. https://t.co/e5ZkMgPgIg #SavorTheWin pic.twitter.com/121nA8hcW7
