Cubs always seem struggle against Arizona.
Not sure why, but they’re just 38-53 all time against the Snakes…and having won just one series against them since 2003 (Cubs took four of six games in ’08)…a win tomorrow and the Cubs win this four-game series 3-1.
That’s big…it makes for a winning homestand…and puts the Cubs above the .500 mark at home…where they’re just 6-6.
Winning at home goes without saying. And with the Cubs in the middle of a stretch that sees them paying 15 of its next 21 games at home…it’s an important couple of weeks.
Furthermore, Monday marks the end of 19-traight games without a break, which began April 14. Cubs are currently 9-9 during this stretch.
May needs to be a spring board to catch St. Louis. If the 4.5 games back widens by June 1…the final curtain could easily drop on the North Siders.
