Can the Chicago Cubs build on the momentum from Friday’s win?

Cubs 4, Pirates 3: Good for Yu (and KB too!)

The Cubs won their first game out of the All-Star break. Before we talk about the great performance of Yu Darvish and the key hits by Kris Bryant in the Cubs’ 4-3 win over the Pirates Friday afternoon, I think we should start at the end of this game. And that’s because I believe this is the first game in Wrigley Field history that was decided on a replay review. Situation: Two out in the ninth, Kevin Newman at bat, Craig Kimbrel on the mound.

At times, the fireballer would […] Chicago Cubs: Yu Darvish must start limiting home runs, hard contact - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Chicago Cubs hope for a stronger second half from Yu Darvish

Yu Darvish takes the ball to open the second half on Friday, with the Chicago Cubs hoping for more consistency from their high-ceilinged right-hander. On one hand, the Chicago Cubs have gotten more out of Yu Darvish in year two than they did in the first season of his six-year, $126 million contract.
