A Game That Didn't Seem to Ever End--Cubs 2 Brewers 1 (15 innings)

A Game That Didn't Seem to Ever End--Cubs 2 Brewers 1 (15 innings)
Baseball is a weird game. The Cubs and Brewers have played 24 innings in the past two days, and the Cubs have managed just two runs in the nearly three games played. Yet the Cubs have managed to pull out the victory today that again puts them into first place. Cole Hamels was brilliant at... Read more »

Cubs vs. Brewers (5/10-5/12)

Cubs vs. Brewers (5/10-5/12)
The Cubs enter today’s three game set in an unusual situation due to scheduling quirks and weather. With a win against the Brewers the Cubs would tie Milwaukee’s win total, but thanks to the roughly bajillion off-days the Cubs have enjoyed in April (that won’t come into play later this year I am sure) the Cubs...

The Chicago Cubs took on the Miami Marlins in the final game of a three game series and were able to win the series with a 4-1 victory over the Marlins on Thursday afternoon.

He's on Fire--Cubs 5 Marlins 2

He's on Fire--Cubs 5 Marlins 2
It was almost a mirror opposite of the game yesterday. Jon Lester pitched a quality start though it never felt like the Cubs had the game in hand like last night. Lester and the rest of the Cubs staff did not issue a single free pass, but the Marlins kept the game level at 2-2... Read more »

Hard Pill to Swallow--Marlins 6 Cubs 5

Hard Pill to Swallow--Marlins 6 Cubs 5
This was a hard pill to swallow of a loss. The Cubs lead for eight innings en route to what should have been their eighth straight win. The Cubs out hit the Fish all night. The home plate umpire had a tight zone but Cubs batters took advantage for more walks than base hits. Cole... Read more »

The Staredown--Cubs 6 Cardinals 5

The Staredown--Cubs 6 Cardinals 5
Baseball is such a weird, odd, beautiful sport. The Cubs have now won 6 straight and have lost the same number in a row within the first 30 games. The last two of the ongoing six game winning streak has featured the Cubs starters throwing exactly 81 pitches in their starts. Unfortunately the two starts... Read more »

Hendo Finally a Maddux--Cubs 4 Cardinals 0

Hendo Finally a Maddux--Cubs 4 Cardinals 0
Kyle Hendricks finally has thrown a Maddux. The drama from the game was removed early in every sense. Hendricks gave up a leadoff single in the third inning. The Cubs put up a three spot in the bottom half of the inning. And the Professor needed only 81 pitches to complete 9 innings for his... Read more »

The Chicago Cubs cruised through a sweep of the Seattle Mariners in the second and final game of the interleague series on Wednesday.
