If you didn’t stay up for all of last night’s Chicago Cubs win over the Cincinnati Reds, you may have thought it was going to be a modestly close one, as the Cubs held onto a 3-0 lead into the later innings. But a five-run explosion in the eighth inning turned the game into another laugher, and the Cubs are now 8-1 on the season for the first time since 1969.
Joe Maddon discussed the win, as well as the overall hot start to the season, and you can watch his comments overlaid on highlights from the win below. It’s nice to wake up to thoughtful Joe Maddon remarks, and the Cubs doing good things.
