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

Saturday’s game started well enough but didn’t stay that way. Mark Leiter Jr. had a bit of trouble and C.J. Cron went deep. Leiter still looks like a good option for innings. Patrick Wisdom looks like he’s warming up a little.

The team had some late life — a seventh-inning rally nearly overturned the verdict, but it wasn’t quite enough, and the Cubs are 4-4 heading into today’s afternoon contest. Al will have details in his recap.
