With apologies to the understandably disappointed among you, I’ll never complain about a doubleheader split. It’s just kinda what always seems to happen.
Mike Montgomery’s start was a sight for sore eyes, even as the bullpen let him down after those six innings. With only so many healthy guys Joe Maddon trusts right now, some relievers were asked to pull double-duty today, and it didn’t work out in the later innings of this one when the Cubs gave the game away. Trade rumors will continue to abound.
Even setting aside the bullpen coughing it up, the Cubs failed to come through with the many opportunities they had, and also failed to record an extra-base hit in the game. Won’t win too many that way.
Moving on …
