Guess how many teams this season came back to win after trailing by multiple runs in extra innings.
A very good weekend for the Cubs – catch up on the headlines you missed.
The Cubs can sweep the series today!
Hopefully the Cubs are leaping into the air once again after today’s game. Feels like a big swing game.
Roster Moves: Cubs Add Rene Rivera, Send Catcher Victor Caratini to Triple-A Iowa (UPDATE: Uehara Activated, Zastryzny to Iowa)
As expected, the Cubs have optioned switch-hitting catcher Victor Caratini to Iowa to make room for Rivera.
The Chicago Cubs can win the series with just one more win this afternoon.
Arrieta continues to carry the rotation, the Cubs’ young power bats set a team record, and much more.
This is excellent news, as Rivera is still an excellent defensive backup who hits lefties well.
Lots of Cubs injuries to update, with a mix of good and expectedly not great news.
It could’ve been much, much worse for the Cubs.
The Cubs’ bullpen has become extremely walk-prone, and it’s not just one or two guys. Also: Kris Bryant is awesome, but the NL is loaded.
It’s sort of a “no news is good news” situation on Lester, who’s going for future exams as we speak.
If Lester has to go to the DL, Mike Montgomery figures to step into the rotation.
Jon Lester Gives Up Nine Runs in the 2nd Inning, Leaves with the Trainer (UPDATE: Left Lat Tightness)
It’s not clear if Lester is injured at this point, but it was an ugly outing in the results column either way.
Kyle Schwarber continues to work on his approach at the plate and it’s starting to pay off, even if in streaks.
Chris Nunn is 6’5″, left-handed, and throws 98 MPH … yeah, Cubs’ll give him a shot.
Think about all the crazy stuff that happened on that one. Also: trouble for the Cardinals, hopefully no trouble for Rondon, more.
Joe Maddon said the call was “asinine,” and he was still hot after the game.
