Hurts-Brewers 6 Cub 5

Hurts-Brewers 6 Cub 5
Don’t it? The formula that had become ho-hum has strangely disappeared the last three contests. The Cubs starters are not turning in the quality starts and the offense has struggled despite the run totals. Today the bats managed the feat of scoring more runs than they had hits, but it wasn’t enough once again. What... Read more »

Sky is Falling--Brewers 6 Cubs 5 (10 innings)

Sky is Falling--Brewers 6 Cubs 5 (10 innings)
Okay, I hope no one actually thinks that after the Cubs suffered back to back defeats for the first time in 2020. It was a frustrating loss two games in a row against a division foe. The Cubs blew a chance to truly bury the Brewers in the short season. The four game swing has... Read more »

No No-No But Still Good--Cubs 4 Brewers 2

No No-No But Still Good--Cubs 4 Brewers 2
So last night I questioned the realness of this incredible start to the season. This is the best start the Cubs have had since 1907, for the record. There was some discussion in the comments about whether or not this season counts and how real this year being held together with baling wire and duct... Read more »

Carefree Day at the Ballpark--Cubs 9 Brewers 1

Carefree Day at the Ballpark--Cubs 9 Brewers 1
It took two and half years into a three year deal, but the Cubs saw the pitcher that caused them to strike early in the deep freeze offseason of 2018. Tyler Chatwood was dominant on a blazing hot afternoon. A Keston Hiura walk was the only blemish through four innings. In command of his pitches,... Read more »

Familiar Feelings--Brewers 8 Cubs 3

Familiar Feelings--Brewers 8 Cubs 3
The Cubs started 2016 3-0. The Cubs started 1995 4-0. Those are the only times in the past twenty-five years that the Cubs have managed to win more than one game to start the season. It looked like the 2020 vintage might actually start the year with a winning streak. Yu Darvish was shaky but... Read more »

Sanitizing 2019--Cubs 3 Brewers 0
Recaps are going to be slightly different in 2020, and the short version is that this is most likely what you will get immediately after a game in 2020. A full explanation of what is happening and why will be posted below.* The Cubs had to wait an awfully long time for it, but the Northside ball... Read more »

The Chicago Cubs were swept by the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday afternoon, losing 8-5 in the third and final game of the series. Brewers starter Adrian Houser worked a quick first.

Tough Pill To Swallow--Brewers 3 Cubs 2

Tough Pill To Swallow--Brewers 3 Cubs 2
The Cubs lost in so many ways today. The hits began with the news that Javier Báez’s thumb wasn’t just a minor strain needing a few days rest but was indeed a hairline fracture. That put the Cubs star shortstop 2019 season in jeopardy. The Cubs then lost a game that never trailed until the... Read more »

A Loss -- Brewers 7, Cubs 1

The Chicago Cubs were held to just three hits in the 7-1 loss versus the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. Cubs starter Cole Hamels had a rough outing, lasting only 3.1 innings.

Is There Anybody Out There--Cubs 10 Brewers 5

Is There Anybody Out There--Cubs 10 Brewers 5
The Cubs won a key game in September against an important division foe, but I can’t help but feel a twinge of ‘please like my sport’z with the NFL’s annual dominance of the American sports landscape beginning once again. The Cubs played the Brewers on the same night as the Bears and Packers for the... Read more »
