I pour it on my pancakes, Bowie Kuhn. Heh. Go Cubs! I like me a pitcher’s duel but few things beat balls flying out of the yard with regularity. The seemingly rejuvenated Cubs look to fire another broadside and chase the woeful Pirates out of town this afternoon at beautiful Wrigley Field.

The Reds and then the Cardinals come in to finish up the homestand, and then the Cubs head out on the road to close the season against the Bucs and Redbirds. The regular season ends in a fortnight, and the Cubs hope to play beyond that.

Another win would be a step in the right direction, especially given that daunting finishing sequence. Standings and schedule here.
