Here at CUB TRACKS NEWS AND NOTES™, we like to keep things brief on the principle that it makes us appear wise. We don’t always, but we like to.

The Cubs and Cardinals partied Saturday night, with the victory going to the. The Cubs scored in the first inning for the second game in a row and that was good but Joe Buck and John Smoltz steadily refuse to be wished into the cornfield.

Adbert Alzolay looked great. He’s gonna throw a no-no one day. Maybe soon if they don’t fix the ball. But not this time. Quality start though, and deserved a better fate.

“I felt emotion when I stepped out, and it was a pretty crowded St. Louis stadium,” said Cubs manager David Ross after the Cubs turned a tie game through six innings into a 12-3 rout late.

“It definitely felt more like the norm of a baseball season with a pretty big crowd, a weekend series; they’re in first place; we’re in second,” he added. “It’s early still, but I had a little bit of emotion where it felt like a normal big, rivalry series in St. Louis.” — as told to Gordon Wittenmyer.
