Pirates Lose One Won By The Cubs
Pirates lose to Reds, Cubs won big with one. That’s it. One across for Chicago to beat the Brews 1-0 on Saturday.
Kyle Hendricks pitched a gem through 6.
Haren gets the Cubs Sunday call to the mound for the final game of the season for the 3 game contest between the Cubs & Brewers.
With one to go for all, one win for the Cubs, and a loss for the Pirates puts the Wild Card game in Chicago at Wrigley Field on Wednesday. That all becomes firm after Sunday’s play concludes.
This Cubs team has matured beyond even Cubs GM, Theo Epstein’s imagination as he cautioned fans to be patient, because he was not expecting the Cubs to contend until 2016.
Okay. Even beyond my imagination. There are so many keys to this club’s success but, picking just one, it was the Field Leader, the Club Boss on the ground, Joe Maddon.
