Turnabout is fair play. Certainly couldn’t hurt with the Cub lineup posting at least three runs in every game to start the season. Jon Lester was solid again. The Cubs received another quality start and banked another victory in the abbreviated season. This time though the bullpen was solid for five shutout innings to give... Read more »
