Chicago Cubs (29-13) @ St. Louis Cardinals (23-21)

In Series Previews by dmick8917 Comments

The Cubs have not played particularly well over the last week or two. The offense has been rather quiet. Other than the 8-run game in the opener in San Francisco, the Giants pretty much shut down the Cubs offense. The Brewers beat them 2 of 3 also and they’ve lost 7 of their last 11. To their credit, they have managed …

Cubs 2, Brewers 1 (5/18/16)

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius37 Comments

OSS: Against all odds, Travis Wood saves the day. Three up: Travis Wood Houdini-ed himself out of an impossible jam in the twelfth inning. He inherited two runners from Rondon, who was working in his second inning, then walked Santana to load the bases with nobody out. The Cubs brought an outfielder for the extra shot at the force at home but …

Cubs 6, Yankees 1

Did The Cubs Win? OSS: Hammel outduels Tanaka, and Lou Goodvalue gives Masahiro fits. Three Up 1. Luis Valbuena doubled twice and singled once. On the season, he’s .261/.384/.434.
