That’s 19-0 in the last two games. Oof. And they were swept. By the Cardinals. In a series that saw Matt Garza go down with injury, and Ryan Dempster look ineffective. I mean, if it weren’t for Ronnie’s HOF induction, I might say this is one of the worst Cubs weekends ever.
Travis Wood’s line today is obviously awful, and it’s not like he pitched well. But, at the same time, he was victimized by a ton of dinks and dunks, as well as an intermittently tight zone. It wasn’t like he was getting blasted on every pitch – at least until the homers…
The Cubs’ bats did nothing against Lance Lynn, who has owned them all year.
