Losses featuring the Cubs scoring eight runs, featuring the team coming back from a sizable deficit, featuring a starter getting blown out, featuring the bullpen melting down, and featuring a long rain delay in the middle … these are especially un-fun losses.

It was good to see the Cubs battle back more than once, and I suppose bullpen struggles are going to happen sometimes. I think concerns about Jason Hammel at this point are legitimate, and hopefully the Cubs can come through today to split this short series.
