The Hot Streak finally came! What an exciting month to be a Cubs fan. The Cubs won most of the games they had to win and beat the teams that they should beat e.g. Washington Nationals and the Dusty play of the Reds. It was especially fun for me because I attended two walk off Cubs wins, one being my first ever walk off home run I attended (I was the guy waving the W flag on a stick pointing to the camera during "Go Cubs Go") on July 27. I also caught my first bleacher home run which was Ludwick's 2nd home run in the nightcap of the Cubs-Cards doubleheader, and I threw the REAL ball back almost immediately and the reception was awesome.
The Cubs entered July two games under .500 in 4th place 4.5 games behind Milwaukee and finished 7games over .500 in 2nd place just a half game behind the Cardinals even after dealing with injury adversity. The Cubs got 18 wins in July so I'm dividing them by pre all-star break and post all-star break because the Cubs went 11-4 after the break through the end of July. Choose wisely and give me some recommendations please.
