Photo by Quinn Harris/ The Cubs and Reds play the third of a four-game set. Wednesday notes: WILLSON!: Willson Contreras has homered in two of his last four games and three of his last nine contests, and his 16 home runs this season lead all NL catchers. EVEN-UP: Since the Cubs’ 11-game losing streak ended, they are 8-8. The Reds are also 8-8 in that time span. So are the Dodgers, and in the same time frame the Mets are 9-9.

Perhaps the most famous high-scoring game in Cubs history is their 23-22 loss to the Phillies in 1979.

2021 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 102

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports Cubs lose 7-4 despite three homers Today’s Superhero is one of the more positive stories that has come out of the 2021 season. Rafael Ortega is a player who I was completely unfamiliar with prior to this season. He got looks in 2012 with the Rockies, 2016 with the Angels, 2018 with the Marlins and 2019 with the Braves. But my memory does not deceive me, nowhere in that time did he ever face the Cubs. Back in 2016 at the age of 25, Rafael got 202 plate appearances with the Angels and put up just a .575 OPS. That has been his longest...
