Fun fact from this game:

One last bit of summary of this loss: If you’ll recall, the Cubs looked pretty good while winning six of their first 10 games this year. Since then, they have lost nine of 11. They are probably not quite as good as they were during the first 10, but neither are they as bad as they have looked over those last 11, in which they have been outscored 57-46. (The 21-run outburst against the Pirates was pretty much negated by the 20 runs they’ve allowed the last two games.)

Perhaps today will be better.
