CUBS WIN! CUBS SWEEP! CUBS MAKE ME HAPPY!
If you thought the Cubs would go to New York and beat Marcus Stroman, Noah Syndergaard, and Jacob deGrom in consecutive games for a sweep … you are a person of greater faith than I. Good for you. And good for the Cubs.
Jon Lester struggled early in this one, but turned things around in a significant way, and wound up going six strong. The bullpen kept things smooth from there. Weird, it’s another three-run win, but it feels so different from last night.
