The simCubs won their seventh in a row, 4-3 over David Price and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Yu Darvish had a good game, though he threw a ton of pitches and had to give way to a succession of relievers.

Timely hitting was the order of the day as several Cubs came up big when it counted and the relief corps held on for the win, though not without some anxious moments.

Today the simCubs come up against Alex Wood (4-1, 2.53), who is having a good season. But the Professor (6-0, 1.87) is having another great season and there’s no reason to suspect that this will end today.

Al will have more information about that 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.

And now, here’s Cub Tracks News and Notes, the only links column that really matters. As always, * means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and Chrome). {$} means paywall. {$} means limited views. Italics are often used here as sarcasm font.
