Another outstanding performance from Jon Lester saw the Cubs get back on the horse after a disappointing loss Sunday to Arizona. They had won 4 straight heading into that contest, and 10 of their last 11. Luckily, the Cubs came out swinging on Monday. Anthony Rizzo produced 2 RBI singles in a 3 hit performance,
The Cubbies were in control of this one most of the way through. Starting in the 2nd, on an Addison Russell RBI double, the Cubs built a steady lead in the early going. In the 3rd, the runs kept coming. First, Kris Bryant singled in a pair, then red-hot Ben Zobrist drove in another on
How are things going for the Cubs, you ask? But seriously, that’s probably the understatement of the century. The Cubs are on FIRE.

A couple of lefties take the hill tonight for the series finale between the Cubs and Angels. For the boys in blue, Jon Lester takes the ball in his 6th career start in Anaheim. On the other side, 24 year old Andrew Heaney will be called upon to face the Cub’s dangerous lineup. Let’s start
You’re damn right we’re excited! Here’s a great hype video from the guys over at Sports Mockery, enjoy!
Great stuff from the Cubbies yesterday. Over 5 innings, Lester struck out 10, allowing only one hit. Offensively, the boys looked great also. Bryant, La Stella, and Soler all had multi-hit games, David Ross went 3 for 3 with 3 doubles and 4 RBI, and Schwarber went deep for the second time this spring. But it
