The simCubs looked bad losing to the woeful Pirates, who took the meatloaf and will probably have it with pierogi while the Cubs travel to the city that beer made famous to oppose the Brewers in a weekend set-to.

Freddie Peralta will face Kyle Hendricks as the 35-16 Cubs try to extend their lead over division rivals Milwaukee (28-23). Al will have more in the game post (at 2:30 p.m. CT, for our 3 p.m. start). I’ll drop the specific URL to the contest in the game thread, but you can lurk at the BCB Media Center and catch it there as well. All past games and highlights reels are available there too, if you want the full #simCubs experience.

... on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, Bleed Cubbie Blue brings a you a lighthearted Cubs-centric look at baseball’s past. Here’s a handy Cubs timeline, to help you follow along as we review hand-picked scenes from the rich tapestry of Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball history*.
