Rowan Wick lights my candle.
... eh. Gonna workshop that one.
The losing streak ends at 4. Cubs win! They blank Pittsburgh 2-0. Jon Lester with 6+ innings for the win. Tyler Chatwood with the hold Rowan Wick with his first career save. Kris Bryant hit his 25th home run.
Relief pItchers the Cubs used in Tuesday’s loss: Kyle Ryan, David Phelps, Duane Underwood and Derek Holland. Used tonight: Ryan, Rowan Wick, Pedro Strop and Holland. Bullpen attrition seems to kill Cubs every season, and it’s happening sooner than usual despite $50-mill outlay.
Fourth pitching change of the inning brings rookie Rowan Wick into the game to face Moustakas.
Fun fact about today's Cubs Rule 5 pick Trevor Megill: last year, at the start of the offseason, the Padres had a massive 40-man roster crunch, and there were a ton of fringe relief arms we talked about the Cubs picking off.
Three of them?

Brad (Wieck) and Rowan (Wick) were good friends in SD and now reunited here. Wieck even bigger than Wick. 6’7 to 6’3
Rowan Wick was drafted by the Brewers. Then drafted by the Cardinals. Then changed from a position player to a pitcher. Then claimed off waivers by the Padres. Then traded by the Padres to a Cubs for an AAAA player. And now he's the best reliever on the Cubs in his first year.
This is the Cubs bullpen for tonight’s game. What would you have said if you could go back in time to early April and tell yourself this.
Rowan Wick's name was barely mentioned during Spring Training. Now, he's going for a save in the thick of a playoff chase in a 1-0 game on Aug. 22. What a season for the Cubs' rookie reliever.
Another great outing for Hendricks, but he won't get a chance to pick up his 9th win of the season.
Standing ovation from the 40,721 fans at Wrigley as he walks off the field and gives way to Rowan Wick in a tie ballgame
Kudos to the front office for finding Rowan Wick. Traded a notable player (Jason Vosler) from their farm system’s largest weakness, power hitting, to acquire a player in an area the farm was deep (RH RP). They did it because they loved Wick. And they nailed it.
Cubs relievers to start this inning:
Phelps - 1 pitch (HR)
Holland - 4 pitches (all balls, walk to Yelich)
Now Rowan Wick on to try to stop the bleeding and keep this game tied.
After being acquired by Cubs, Brad Wieck stepped into the team's pitching lab and started working on a spike curveball. Similar to what the Cubs did with Rowan Wick.
The Cubs' new strategy: Trading for pitchers named Wi(e)ck and teaching them spike curves.
