Yes! It’s true, 3-2 with good performances from everybody!!
Really, as Harry Caray once commented, ‘You don’t think the Cubs are going to lose 162 games….’ No, I don’t!
As I commented last day of the Cactus contest, What if? What if the players ignore their historical stats, and just keep coming at their opponents as they did in that Spring contest with the D-backs?
It is possible as the Cubs got 3 runs early in the game, allowing a 2 run 7th to the Pirates! The difference? Cubs fans didn’t watch the lead disintegrate to a loss. Instead, they held on for the win!
Cubs now at 1-2 in the NL Central division, and come home to Wrigley for a set with the Phillies.
