What a good series all around that was against the Reds, eh? It wasn’t just that the Cubs pulled off their first sweep of the year, it was that they got solid contributions in all phases of the game for what seems like the first series of the year. The bats were clicking, the starters pitched well and into the later innings, and the bullpen tightened up when needed.
Playing against a now-under-.500-probably-for-good Reds team didn’t hurt either, as the Cubs had previously played the toughest schedule in the NL.
