If you’re reading this post chances are you’re one of the few Cubs fans who hasn’t tuned out the baseball season in favor of the NFL. Although, who could blame you for doing so? Nonetheless, your attention is appreciated.
Moving on…A wild-and-wooly win for the Cubs at Citi Field Sunday night. The Cubs six-run rally in the 11th covered another late-game lead squandered by the bullpen.
It’s the third straight game Chicago has coughed up a lead. Yet, somehow they managed to take 2 of 3 against the Mets to win its first series in New York since July of 2006.
Better still, the Cubs are 4-2 over its last six road series beginning August 1 in Pittsburgh. That’s helped push the Cubs record to (22-17) since July 31, tied with St. Louis for the second-best mark in the division during that span.
