The Cubs Have Been More or Less Unstoppable Since Their Very Stoppable Start

Chicago Cubs News

Feel like the Cubs rarely lose these days? Well, yeah. That’s not just your happy gut talking.

Since April 7, the Cubs have gone 22-7, and they’ve lost just twice in their last 14 games. They beat the Brewers last night, took the series, and now hold a two-game lead in the NL Central after starting the year 1-6. They have four fewer losses than the second place Brewers.

The Cubs are basically tied with the Astros and Twins for the best record in baseball, though the Cubs do trail by a fractional bit. But the Cubs, unlike the Astros and Twins, play in the ultra-competitive National League, and during their recent stretch of winning – eight straight series wins – the only team the Cubs have faced that entered the series with a losing record was the Marlins. The Cubs aren’t just winning right now, they’re winning against good teams.
