Cub Tracks lets one slip away

#Cubs, #MLB, and #MiLB news you can use, four days a week. The Cubs came up just short after allowing two late homers. Justin Steele left the game early.

Welcome to today’s episode 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, steeped in writers’ tears, and then cold-brewed overnight for maximum flavor.

The Cubs rolled into Wednesday in possession of the meatloaf and hungry for more, hoping to be fitted for a dustpan. They put up a crooked number early.

Justin Steele came out after three hitless shutout innings (there’s an MRI in his near future), and Hayden Wesneski and his frisbee took the hill. Weznasty was great but the others gave up runs, and so the Cubs will have to serve meatloaf on their day off.
