Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 2, Braves 5 – May 11, 2014

Chicago Cubs

The Braves swept the Cubs in three close-ish games, and the Cubs have now lost seven of their last eight.

I’d make a joke about the Cubs being dominated by Aaron Harang, of all people, but he really has pitched well this year. The Cubs had chances throughout the game, but went just 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position, reminding folks that that’s still a thing.

Edwin Jackson threw a quality start, though it was of the minimally-quality variety, and it was enough to lose. James Russell gave up a two-run homer to Jason Heyward late, just to be sure.

There were a few nice games, but, generally, I’m hoping the Cubs’ players got their mothers very nice flowers for Mother’s Day, rather than leaning on this performance as a “hi, mom!” moment.
