See? Masters of avoiding the sweep. If you count the two two-game sets with the Indians as a four-gamer (and I certainly do for the purposes of getting to say the following!), then the Cubs just won the finale of a would-have-been sweep for the FIFTH time this year. Like I said before, that ain’t good in isolation, but no other contender has avoided being swept like the Cubs. That’s five extra wins they might not have were they into getting broomed.
Last night’s edition saw the Cubs’ bats finally wake up a bit, scoring more than three runs for the first time in TEN DAYS, and Kyle Hendricks post his EIGHTH STRAIGHT quality start. Enjoy the highlights if you missed, or just want to see again:
