Puig Our Enemy -- Reds 6, Cubs 5 (10 innings)

Yu Darvish was on fire Wednesday night as the Chicago Cubs faced the Cincinnati Reds. The starter went 5.1 innings with five hits, two runs (both earned), no walks, and 11 strikeouts. Unfortunately, his stellar performance would not earn him or the team a win. The Reds got on the board first on a single from Eugenio... 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 »

Whacking Day LXIX--Cubs 9 Diamondbacks 1

Whacking Day LXIX--Cubs 9 Diamondbacks 1
The Cubs started the game flat. The Cubs bats were largely lifeless and a Javier Báez TOOTBLAN didn’t help spark any rally in the first two frames. Yu Darvish was wobbly racking up over 50 pitches over those same innings. Then the Cubs batted around in the third on Zack Godley putting up a five... Read more »

Not With a Bang But a Whimper - Diamondbacks 6 Cubs 0

Not With a Bang But a Whimper - Diamondbacks 6 Cubs 0
A Yu Darvish/Zack Greinke matchup is what would happen if the kids from Stranger Things grew up to throw 90 MPH. It’s a duel between two of the most entertaining socially awkward misfits in baseball. And you get the sense that both pitchers would be just as happy if MLB decided to call off the... Read more »
