Fireworks from Anthony Rizzo, Bryan LaHair and Jeff Baker backed six strong innings from Paul Maholm helping the Cubs do something they’ve accomplished only six times in the last 20-years—win on the Fourth of July.
Granted the Cubs have never been known for timely wins, but they are (117-96-3) all-time on Independence Day, including Wednesday’s 5-1 victory against Atlanta.
For all the hardships this season, it was nice for a change to sit back and enjoy a good, all-around Cubs win on our Nation’s birthday. Yes indeed, God Bless America!
