A Wild and Wacky W -- Cubs 9, Braves 7

A Wild and Wacky W -- Cubs 9, Braves 7
The Chicago Cubs pulled out a come-from-behind win versus the Atlanta Braves on Thursday afternoon. Cubs starter Tyler Chatwood faltered and gave up six runs, but what everyone probably cares about is that Craig Kimbrel finally made his Cubs debut. Chatwood started out decently, with a 1-2-3 inning with a line out to third from... Read more »

Everybody love everybody -- Cubs 8, Braves 3

Everybody love everybody -- Cubs 8, Braves 3
The Chicago Cubs remembered how to hit with runners in scoring position on Monday night versus the Atlanta Braves! The offense came, and stayed, alive and the bullpen did their job, for the most part, in the 8-3 victory. Jon Lester worked a quick first on the mound for the Cubs. He got consecutive ground outs...

Now What?--Braves 9 Cubs 4

Now What?--Braves 9 Cubs 4
The Cubs lost an ugly game again. It has been five straight frustrating losses. The defense was not good. The starter couldn’t pitch deep and that meant more innings from the leaky bullpen. The offense only showed up in the final inning, and it all added up to the Cubs first 1-5 start since 2012.... Read more »

April Cruel's -- Braves 8, Cubs 0

The Chicago Cubs entered the series opener with the Atlanta Braves with a 5-1 record at the new SunTrust Park but would ultimately leave with another notch in the L column. The Cubs left one in scoring position in the first. Albert Almora Jr led off and flew out to left for the first out.... Read more »

A Wild Ride - Cubs 14, Braves 10

A Wild Ride - Cubs 14, Braves 10
WHAT A WILD GAME! The Cubs pulled off a good old fashioned rally and overcame a 10-2 deficit to beat the Braves 14-10 at a frigidly cold Wrigley Field. There are so many words to describe Joe Maddon’s 500th game as Cubs manager, and if I used all of them, we’d be here all day.... Read more »

This Sucks--Atlanta 4 Cubs 0

This Sucks--Atlanta 4 Cubs 0
This isn’t fun. The Cubs started 6-7 in 2017 and they have matched that this year. Of course in 2017, that was after facing the St. Louis Cardinals, Los Angeles Dodgers, Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers for 13 games. This year that 13 game period includes games against the Marlins, Reds, Pirates, Brewers, and Pirates.... Read more »

Javy Exits Early--Braves 5 Cubs 1

Javy Exits Early--Braves 5 Cubs 1
The Cubs were playing for the homestand sweep and the series sweep of the tea from Atlanta. It wasn’t meant to be, and it seemed like the Cubs might be cursed with more than just an end to their hot streak. The scorchingly hot Javier Baez had to leave the game early. More on that... Read more »

Thursday Night Football on Saturday--Bears 14 Falcons 12

Thursday Night Football on Saturday--Bears 14 Falcons 12
The Cubs put up two touchdowns on Atlanta this afternoon. That might be more than their football counterparts manage next week. Either way it seems like one Chicago team is poised to head to the postseason. The Cubs won a high scoring squeaker by the end of the game. Either way the Cubs continued their... Read more »

Definition of Pyrrhic--Cubs Braves
The Cubs won the game but lost the season. Okay that is a bit dramatic, but there was certainly that feeling for a few innings this game. Kris Bryant doubled with one out in the first inning and attempted to reach third on a ball in the dirt. The ring finger on the left hand... Read more »
