Cubs: RP Pedro Strop’s car was stolen from his garage Wednesday and later involved in an accident as the thief fled a traffic stop, authorities said. Strop said he was still dealing with police during the game against the Dodgers, talking with officers in the clubhouse. When the score became tied, Strop told them, “I gotta get out of here, I gotta pitch tonight,” according to Cubs spokesman Julian Green. Strop ended up securing a save in the Cubs’ 7-6 win.
