It’s somewhat strange seeing the Cubs win back-to-back games at Arizona, and not just because Chicago has slumped to an early sub-.500 record.
The desert hasn’t exactly been a stomping ground for the Cubs, who are 20-30 all-time at Chase field.
In fact, it’s Chicago’s second-lowest winning percentage at any current NL ballpark–although New York’s Citi Field is a bit of an exception given the Cubs have played just two series at the Mets’ home park going (2-5).
But with Saturday’s 5-3 win, Chicago has won 5 of its last 6 games played at Arizona. They swept a three-game set at Chase last summer, and look to take three of four Sunday afternoon. Is the law of averages finally sliding in the Cubs direction in AZ?
