Here at CUB TRACKS NEWS AND NOTES™, we have news for you. Paul Sullivan says the Cubs are in free fall. This is cheerful. Enjoy.

Now let’s talk about the Cubs. Zach Davies got involved in a pitchers’ duel? Weird. Gosh, Pat Hughes has some pipes. He and Dempster sounded good. The whole game was decent, a good way to spend a wet Saturday when there weren’t enough people around for a seance.

Yeah, an error led to a long ball. That stuff happens. But the full-on embarrassment, that didn’t happen. Pyrrhus would recognize it. He might even recognize Frank Schwindel, who has been clutch often enough in this decidedly odd half-season.

Sergio Alcántara, though. Ouch. Codi Heuer deserved a better fate. So did the team. 10 down, 46 to go.

The family of a two-year-old girl struck by a foul ball 5/28/19 at Minute Maid Park has reached a settlement with the Astros over her injuries, the law firm representing the family told ESPN Friday. Terms are confidential and the court must approve the settlement. The foul off the bat of then-Cub Albert Almora Jr. in a game on ESPN resulted in the toddler’s skull fracture, brain and other injuries and sparked renewed safety concerns and attention to extending netting at all MLB parks. — ESPN
