Chicago Cubs vs. Atlanta Braves simulated game, Saturday 7/11, 3 p.m. CT

The simCubs go for the series win! The simCubs brought out the big bats Friday against the simBraves. Jason Kipnis (!) hit three home runs and drove in five, and Ian Happ added a long ball and the Cubs overcame an early 2-0 deficit to win 11-5. Highlights! Here at BCB, we are going to play simulated games for every game on the Cubs‘ 2020 original schedule via MLB The Show 20. Now that we have had an announcement of an actual 2020 season, we are going to continue these daily simulations through at least July 23, when the 60-game season is scheduled to begin. No matter what happens to the...

Cub Tracks plays out the string

Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports Cubs, simCubs, and MLB news from summer camp The simCubs invaded the land of the Freeman and the home of the Braves and gave the Atlanta squad a big karate chop. It remains to be seen if the Barves have the gumption to fight back, or if the simCubs advance to the chance to sweep the leg Sunday. Jon Lester finally went to eleven and Jason Kipnis shot three bolts into the right field stands, good for five RBI, with Ian Happ clubbing a couple of solo shots and Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo chipping in, the result being a convincing 11-5 victory against a...

Photo by Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via Cubs, simCubs, and MLB news The simCubs earned a split in their series with the White Sox by falling 3-2 in 12 innings. Ian Happ and Javier Baez swatted solo homers but that wasn’t enough as the Cubs failed repeatedly with risp, especially against former Cubs farmhand Dylan Cease, who did everything he could to get them the lead except grab a bat, but in the end prevailed out of dumb luck. Woulda coulda shoulda. Nice tater shots though. No game today. Friday the Cubs start a three-game with the Braves, who are atop the East, heading into the...

Chicago Cubs vs. Chicago White Sox simulated game, Wednesday 7/8, 3 p.m. CT

The simCubs go for the sweep of this brief two-game set. The simCubs absolutely crushed the simWhite Sox Tuesday, winning 10-0 behind a 14-hit attack featuring a home run by Ian Happ. Kyle Hendricks had to be lifted two outs short of a complete-game shutout, but had another outstanding outing.

Photo By Raymond Boyd/Michael Ochs Archives/ Cubs, simCubs, and MLB news The simCubs, behind Russell Johnson Kyle Hendricks and Ryan Tepera, defeated the White Sox ten to zip as Ian Happ pounded a home run and drove in three on the day. Albert Almora Jr. looked like he wants to stay with the big club and Kris Bryant got small. A good time was had by all on the right side of the rivalry and the highlight are full of sunshine and rainbows: Today, southpaws duel on the South Side as Carlos Rodon squares off against Ryan Yarbrough. Al will have more about the game in the game post at 2:30...
