To say the Cubs dominated the month of August would be a slight understatement. They finished the month with a 22-6 record.
For Kyle, he added some serious credibility to his case for the Cy Young Award during the month. He slashed 1.28/3.24/3.48 – ERA/FIP/xFIP for the month which included a season high 5.14 K/BB and a .208 BABIP.
Congrats to Kyle! Now, let’s dominate October.
