Cubs at Diamondbacks Series Preview (9/17-9/19)

Cubs at Diamondbacks Series Preview (9/17-9/19)
The Cubs travel out west for their final venture outside of the Chicago city limits. The Cubs find themselves clinging to a slim lead for the division title. The club also finds themselves running on fumes, but with a series win against the Reds actually extended their advantage by a game. The baseball truism of... Read more »

Good Q Not Good Enough With Slumping O--Reds 2 Cubs 1

Good Q Not Good Enough With Slumping O--Reds 2 Cubs 1
I am making a bad habit of needing to apologize at the start of these, but I just didn’t have it in me last night to write this when I finally crawled into bed. The Cubs dropped the game, but the Brewers finally hit a skid bringing the Cubs magic number down a game. José... Read more »

Second Wind--Cubs 1 Reds 0

Second Wind--Cubs 1 Reds 0
The recap is quite a bit late tonight. The weekend here has been dominated by a small roofing repair. A repair, that I might add, which is still not completed. I felt pretty drained, but the chance to shower and eat has me feeling a second wind. The Cubs seemed to have their own second... Read more »

The Tight Rope--Cubs 3 Reds 2

The Tight Rope--Cubs 3 Reds 2
An exhausted and fatigued Chicago Cubs team did battle with the cellar dwelling Cincinnati Reds, and it showed early on. Matt Harvey and Cole Hamels each made it through three innings without surrendering a run. The Cubs managed a two out hit in each inning against Harvey, but the big hit eluded the Cubs offense...

Fly the Pyrrhic W--Cubs 4 Nationals 3 (10 innings)

Fly the Pyrrhic W--Cubs 4 Nationals 3 (10 innings)
First this is the second time I’ve written this recap. Technology has failed me once again more than two thirds of the way through this recap. So here is your belated recap and my second attempt. The Cubs traveled to Washington in the middle of their extended homestand. It was a success in the most... Read more »

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *deep breath* HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!--Brewers 5 Cubs 1

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *deep breath* HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!--Brewers 5 Cubs 1
The Cubs did the minimum in their important series against the Brewers. Unfortunately the offense’s deep freeze continued and the bullpen continues to be leaky as the Brewers leave town down a mere game. Curtis Granderson was inserted into the starting lineup in the leadoff spot, and it shows the difference between the hands Craig... Read more »

Happy--Cubs 3 Brewers 0

Happy--Cubs 3 Brewers 0
José Quintana hasn’t been what the Cubs thought they were getting when trading for him. He also hasn’t been as terrible as some think. There is no question that there is something about Q when he faces the Brewers. The 6.2 scoreless innings tonight brought his career ERA against the Brew Crew down to a... Read more »

Pain--Brewers 3 Cubs 2

Pain--Brewers 3 Cubs 2
First off, an apology is needed for the recap appearing now. I have been a bit under the weather lately, and it wasn’t just the actual weather the Cubs have been through or the Cubs performance when they have played. I also got suckered into watching the Bears for the first time in years, and... Read more »

Blame It on the Rain - Nationals 6, Cubs 5

Rookie Jefry Rodriguez started on the mound for the Nationals in game two. Anthony Rizo was the only man to reach base for the Cubs after a hit by pitch but no runs were recorded. Albert Almora Jr and Kris Bryant recorded the first two outs with flyouts prior to the hit by pitch, and... Read more »

Let's Play Two (Finally)! - Nationals 10, Cubs 3

The Cubs and Nationals got underway at 7:25 CST after about an hour and a half rain delay. The rain was still coming down at the first pitch from Nationals starter Joe Ross, but the show must go on. After a groundout from leadoff man Daniel Murphy and a flyout from Javier Báez, Anthony Rizzo... Read more »
