The Cubs went out to an early lead, but Edwin Jackson and the bullpen couldn’t hold it.
Thud. The Cubs’ first half ends.
It was really, really, really not Edwin Jackson’s day.
Walk off win for the Cubs. That is neat.
It was a crappy week in Cincinnati, but that was a hell of a fun way to end it.
The Cubs lose again. No special magic for Alcantara or Beeler tonight.
Wada with a successful debut, but the bullpen let this one slip away.
The Cubs wound up making a game of this one, but it wasn’t enough.
Pitching was not the order of the day.
The offense is in a rut, which may or may not be related to the Samardzija/Hammel trade. That’s mostly a joke.
That’s an exclamation point.
The Cubs celebrated the Fourth of July by winning in Washington. That’s their 4th in row, and they’ve now got a positive run differential on the year.
That’s an emphatic sweep of the defending World Champs.
