Jinx--Tigers 7 Cubs 1
So tonight clearly has one person to blame. The Detroit Tigers with the worst starting staff ERA in history currently pitched a near quality start against the Cubs lineup. The Tigers lineup produced more than one run in the first inning for just the second time in 2020. And a grand slam in the sixth... Read more »

Getting the Brooms Again--Cubs 5 Royals 4

Getting the Brooms Again--Cubs 5 Royals 4
Stop me if you’ve heard this one. The Cubs starter provided a quality start. The offense had enough power to get a lead and the bullpen did enough to make the lead stand up. The formula continues to be a winning one. The Cubs are now 9-2 which is a starting record they haven’t equaled since 2016.... Read more »
