Carrying the Cubs to... come on man, that was their biggest W of the year so far, right?
9 innings, 5 hits, 9 Ks and a wafer thin margin of error, because the bats just could not connect at clutch moments.
9 left on base, scoring opportunities way beyond what they gave the Pirates.
Cubs 2 Pirates 1.
So cheers to Mr. Lester - what an incredible job.
Had they pulled off a win in that first game - a game the Pirates tried to give away, we'd all be freaking out with confidence because Gerrit Cole is one tough s.o.b.
Water under bridge.
Tonight at 6 Chi-Time, Superman takes the mound.
The rare possibility of win #20 for Jake Arrieta, a Chicago Cub.
Yeah, me too.
