Cub Tracks’ with six you get meatloaf

Recent #Cubs,#MLB, and #MiLB news, four days a week. The Cubs streak was extended by a game as they gave themselves a chance for a home sweep in the final home game of the season.

Welcome to today’s edition of Cub Tracks news and notes™, a greatest-hits from Chicago-style beat writers and bloggers, ground from #Cubs, #MiLB, and #MLB baseball, overheated, and then cold-brewed overnight for maximum flavor.

This final series is fun so far. We can enjoy this. Then there’s playoff baseball, which the Cubs won’t be involved in, and we can do the recriminations then, while free agent speculation reaches crescendo.
