And the Cubs take the series!
Winning any four-game series is a fantastic outcome, but when it comes in late September, on the road, against the team that was in second place behind you in the division when the series started? It’s freaking money.
Speaking of money, Jose Quintana was the story today, shutting out the Brewers, and completely dominating from end to end. You already felt really good about how Quintana was pitching coming into this game, but dang if the dude isn’t REALLY hitting his stride at the right time. That Cubs playoff rotation is looking mighty good.
What a fantastic series for the Cubs, whose magic number is NOW DOWN TO JUST TWO.
