â?¦ And the Cubs never lost again.
I joke, of course, but I have to imagine we all feel a whole lot better after that three-game sweep over the Reds at Wrigley Field, right? While the Cubs pitching staff did allow five (windy) runs per game, the offense scored 25 runs of their own, and it was very nice to see.
Now, they’ll continue the home stand with three more games against the, well, first-place Milwaukee Brewers (yeah, that’s a thing). And after that, they’ll have four against the Giants at Wrigley (I’ll be in the bleachers for Wednesday night’s game), before heading out west to take on the Dodgers and Padres for three each. There’s a lot more baseball to be played, so let’s hope they keep up the pace.
We’re Going Streaking
The Chicago Cubs (21-19) are back up over .500 (by two games, no less!), though they are in third place of the NL Central. The first-place Brewers are coming to town, though, so this weekend’s contest could shift the standings quite a bit.
The Milwaukee Brewers (24-18) are a solid six games over .500 and in first place of the NL Central. They just wrapped up a sweep of their own against the Padres yesterday, and are red hot. We’ll get into some of the individual performances down below, but suffice it to say they’re playing pretty well.
