Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

miller parkAfter yesterday’s loss, the Cubs cannot leave Milwaukee not in the basement of the NL Central. Jeff Samardzija is still going to try and win anyway.

He’s working on a rough stretch of starts, and I’d imagine he’d like to finish the year strong for a variety of reasons.

Game Info
