Well, that’s back to back series losses to a couple of the worst teams in the National League, which would probably be more disconcerting if the Cubs weren’t, themselves, one of the worst teams in the National League.
Junior Lake was the Cubs’ offense today with a solo blast. The story, though, was Scott Baker, who was making his Cubs debut after a long, long Tommy John recovery. He sat in the upper-80s with his fastball, and had some nice movement every now and again. He looked the part of a wily veteran, but it’s really hard to judge based on five innings against the Brewers.
