Cubs Notes From San Diego
I must admit to being somewhat frustrated but, what Cubs fan isn’t? 6 Rs in the 1st, and it doesn’t hold up on Friday night in San Diego. 8-6 Padres. Got to put it behind, and move forward.
Saturday comes along, and the Cubs tie the series with a 3-2 win. I’m a little less frustrated. Looks like Barney had a good night with 3 hits for 4.
I am amazed at Sunday’s game but, shouldn’t be. The Cubs go the extras, again but, come out on the losing side of a 3-2, 15 inning contest.
So, I soften up a little bit, and try to retain a good attitude about the Front Office but, I can see the Cubs pitching staff as a single entity is suffering.
The starters are not as brilliant as they were at the beginning of the year. The bullpen had a slight upsurge, and then, proving they can’t hold on. Sunday’s game is a good example, and you can get the details from the Cubs Home Page.
In the 13th, the Cubs went in to the bottom of the inning leading 2-0. Padres were down to their last out, the last strike, and before the frame concludes, it’s 2-2.
The pitching staff has been shredded with trades, and there is no consistency in the pen, at all.
