May The Cubs Fourth Be With You

By bullpenbrian at 07.05.2012 Leave a comment.

Anthony Rizzo

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!
