Chicago Cubs vs. San Francisco Giants preview, Wednesday 7/11, 2:45 CT

The Cubs go for the series win in San Francisco. After 89 games in 2016, the Cubs were 54-35. They enter this afternoon’s contest just two games worse than that at 52-37. Of course, that 54-35 record included a pair of wins after a 5-15 stretch. This year’s team has gone from 42-34 following a five-game losing streak to the 52-37 mark, so they’ve won 10 of their last 13. That’s a nice little stretch they can begin building on in the last four games before the All-Star break. I’m still not certain why the ASB is a week later than usual this year. Normally, this week would be...

2018 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 89

2018 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 89

Cubs shut out Giants 2-0 As the Cubs drift towards the finish line of the first “half” of the season, they’ve now received two strong pitching performances back to back. It’s always been funny to me that we call the time after the All-Star break the second half. For the Cubs, the second half began a little more than a week ago and for some teams, it was almost two weeks ago. Anyway, I digress. Jose Quintana followed up the very strong pitching performance of Kyle Hendricks on Monday night with one of his own. It was a little less dominant and a lot shorter, but it was okay. The...

Cubs 2, Giants 0: Pitching, and just enough timely hitting

Cubs 2, Giants 0: Pitching, and just enough timely hitting

The Cubs got their second straight outstanding start. This is a good sign for the future. SAN FRANCISCO — The Cubs defeated the Giants 2-0 Tuesday night, and a Cubs win is always good news, but the even better news was the outstanding start from Jose Quintana. Q was dominant over six innings and looked like the pitcher the Cubs thought they were getting in the trade from the White Sox that was completed almost exactly one year ago (July 13, 2017). In fact, check this out (and I wouldn’t have guessed this): José Quintana3.00 ERA over last 14 starts #Cubs— Christopher Kamka (@ckamka)...

Giants skunked on three hits in loss to Cubs

Novice baseball fans need not read dusty old books to learn about the Dead Ball Era. Just come to AT&T Park and see a living example. The Giants are pitching like it's 1919. Problem is, they're hitting like it, too, and did not hit at all in Tuesday night's 2-0 loss that evened their series with the Cubs at a game apiece. Chicago held the Giants to three singles. The Cubs settled the game with two runs in the seventh inning against Derek Holland and Sam Dyson. The Giants have held the National League's highest-scoring offense to three runs in...

Chicago Cubs vs. San Francisco Giants preview, Tuesday 7/10, 9:15 CT

The Cubs look to even up their series with the Giants. SAN FRANCISCO — Kris Bryant had two at-bats in Double-A Tennessee’s afternoon game against Montgomery and then left the game. That resulted in this speculation: Yes. My bad. Chance he can play the day game here in SF tomorrow. RT @SDekelaita: @ESPNChiCubs kB already played left after 2 at bats— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) July 10, 2018 It’s a long flight from Knoxville to San Francisco, but KB could possibly arrive late this evening and play Wednesday. As always, we await developments. Other notes for tonight: In the first...
