Going Streakin'--Cubs 2 Royals 0

Going Streakin'--Cubs 2 Royals 0
It is cliche to say that a team needs to get off to a good start in baseball, but in the condensed season a strong start was always going to be a huge plus. The Cubs found a way to win another ballgame and this win rhymed with yesterday’s lack of offense. The Cubs were... Read more »

Bats Hot, Bullpen Less So but Winning is Fum--Cubs 8 Reds 5

Bats Hot, Bullpen Less So but Winning is Fum--Cubs 8 Reds 5
It was a pretty similar affair as last night’s delayed gratification win. The bullpen did not make nearly as much of a nail-biter, but the Cubs followed a familiar formula to victory.

Walkoff Homers are Fun--Cubs 4 Reds 3 (10 innings)

Walkoff Homers are Fun--Cubs 4 Reds 3 (10 innings)
The story was a familiar one this afternoon. A no name starter was wobbly in the first inning. He gave up three runs and without a couple of excellent defensive plays it might have been more. But after the initial onslaught the offense went cold and the opposition was able to come back and win... Read more »
