Jesus Christ thank you for finally ending that game. Just a display of constant nothingness. Like a beer pong game where nobody can make a shot. But hey, its over, and we won. So lets break it down: It wasn’t until the 5th inning that some blood was spilled in this one. It was a
What an onslaught it has been thus far for the Cubbies against Pittsburgh. After today’s 9-2 victory, the Cubs have now outscored the Pirates by 20 runs in only 4 games. Today was all about the long ball. Addison Russell hit a three-run shot in the 4th, then Kris Bryant added a two-run shot in
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
This one got off to a shaky start, and finished the same way for the Cubs, but luckily they were able to pull out a victory. Washington would start the game scoring one run in each of the first 2 innings, but Chicago came roaring back with a barrage of homers and doubles to build
Jake Arrieta took the hill tonight for Chicago, and he did some more of what he does. In 7 innings, Arrieta allowed no runs, and struck out 5. After a shaky start, allowing back to back walks to start the game, Arrieta settled in and was straight up nasty. Allowing only 2 hits, Jake did
After a crappy extra innings loss to the absolutely terrible Atlanta Braves, the Cubs welcomed in division rival Pittsburgh last night, and had no trouble bouncing back. The last time these two teams faced each other, the Cubs got the better of the Pirates in a shutout victory in the NL Wildcard Game last year.
It’s been an exciting start to 2016 for the Cubs. From a performance standpoint, you couldn’t ask for anything more from this squad. It’s been raining runs for Chicago hitters, and Cubs’ pitchers have put opposing lineups into a drought time and again. This team is straight up gellin’. Now, lets look at how the
Another day, another W for the good guys. After an ugly loss Saturday evening to the Reds, the Cubs came back swinging on Sunday with a decisive 9-0 victory. It was another great day for Jason Hammel, who started for the Cubs, throwing 6 scoreless innings, striking out 7, and walking only 2. The shutout
How are things going for the Cubs, you ask? But seriously, that’s probably the understatement of the century. The Cubs are on FIRE. Tonight’s performance was the perfect follow up to what was perhaps the most dominant performance I’ve seen on a baseball field. It was like back in high school going to play against
For the final game of the series against Cincinnati the Cubbies didn’t hold back. Hanging 11 hits on the Reds’ staff, Chicago continued to look dominant as they expanded their MLB leading +43 run differential on the season. For a little perspective, that’s 19 runs better than the second place team, the St. Louis Cardinals.
