The simCubs earned a split in their series with the White Sox by falling 3-2 in 12 innings. Ian Happ and Javier Baez swatted solo homers but that wasn’t enough as the Cubs failed repeatedly with risp, especially against former Cubs farmhand Dylan Cease, who did everything he could to get them the lead except grab a bat, but in the end prevailed out of dumb luck.

Woulda coulda shoulda. Nice tater shots though.

No game today. Friday the Cubs start a three-game with the Braves, who are atop the East, heading into the All-Star break. We’ll have current standings and league leaders available later today, and Al will have more about that game in the game post at 2:30 p.m. CT, Friday, after which I’ll post the actual URL to the stream at 3 p.m. CT. Or you can catch the game at the BCB Media Center and also catch past games and game videos, if you want the full #simCubs experience.

And now, here’s Cub Tracks News and Notes. 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.
