Welcome to today’s episode of Cub Tracks news and notes™. Here we have material from current beat writers, bloggers, and the occasional in-house habitué, moonlighting. These pieces center around #Cubs, #MiLB, and #MLB baseball.

It’s good to have baseball to talk about.

Justin Steele looked good in his two-inning stint.

Alfonso Rivas went oppo for one run and Alexander Canario almost had another.

Jesse Chavez gave up some hard contact in his outing. Brennen Davis bailed him out though.

There was more. Al will tell you all about it in his recap, if you didn’t see the game.

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 on this page as sarcasm font. The powers that be have provided sarcasm font in the comments.

Cubs birthdays: Emil Geiss, Johnny Butler, Clyde Shoun, Jim Willis, Manny Alexander. Also notable: Joe McGinnity HOF.

Food for Thought:

Thanks for reading. Cub Tracks and Bleed Cubbie Blue do not necessarily endorse the opinions of writers whose work is linked in this series of articles. We try to present a balanced view, and let the facts speak for themselves.
