The Chicago Cubs lost 7-3, for their third-straight loss against the Cardinals. Their division lead is cut to 1.5-games, with just under a month of baseball left.
The Chicago Cubs lost their third-straight game last night, with that being their fourth loss in five games. With this past weekend being a chance for the Cubs to separate themselves from the Cardinals, they failed to do so, and just lead by 1.5-games now. Tomorrow’s game is very crucial for the Cubs, as they have a chance to leave the series up 2.5-games on the Cardinals.
This was just another game where the Cubs started fast in the early innings, but couldn’t keep their momentum going. After the first two innings, the Cubs led the game 3-1, with Jason Kipnis hitting a two-run home run. Everything would go downhill from there, with Jon Lester struggling in the third.
