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

Hayden Wesneski took the hill in Cincinnati’s Great American Ballpark aiming to extend the seven-game winning skein. His opponent was Hunter Greene, still searching for consistency.

Consistent or not, Greene was slightly more effective, and the Cubs only plated one run while the Reds plated a trio. So ends the streak, and there are two games left.
