Cubs 7, Reds 6: A little bit of everything

That was one strange game. It figured that a game that included a first-inning grand slam, a mediocre outing from a starting pitcher that turned dominant, a stolen base from said starting pitcher and some miserably bad bullpen work from the Cubs would end on a wild pitch, didn’t it? That’s only a quick summary of the Cubs’ wacky 7-6 win over the Reds Wednesday night, so let’s get right to it. John Lackey, who had been so good since his return from the disabled list about a month ago, began as if he needed to go back on the DL. He loaded the bases with nobody out in the top of the...

Don’t look now, but Cubs starter John Lackey is making his own playoff push

It can be dangerous to write nice things about a 38-year-old pitcher as a likely and deserved playoff starter. Almost as dangerous as going to the mound to take the ball from John Lackey. Earlier in the season, you never knew what you’d get from Lackey. Well, actually, you did know. It would be...

Cubs Blow 6-1 Lead, Still Win With A Walk-Off Wild Pitch

John Lackey was pretty good again, pitching six innings and only allowing one run, yet the Chicago Cubs couldn’t hold on to their 6-1 lead after the bullpen allowed three home runs to the Cincinnati Reds.

Chicago Cubs walk-off on wild pitch in drama-filled battle against Reds

John Lackey pitched well and stole a base. Anthony Rizzo hit a first-inning grand slam. Just like that, the Chicago Cubs topped the Cincinnati Reds. One of these things, you may expect.

John Lackey Gets Tagged Out At Second Base After A Walk Following First Career Stolen Base

First of all, hats off to John Lackey because I’m going to say about 99 percent of Chicago Cubs fans couldn’t wait to get rid of him, myself included, and although it hasn’t been pretty the righty has been good enough to win games for the past month. That continued on Wednesday against the Cincinnati […]
