The Chicago Cubs did it! They finally won a game! The last game they won going into Wednesday night was their combined “no-hitter” game a couple of weeks ago against the Los Angeles Dodgers. They then went on to lose 11 straight games. They went from legit contention in the National League Central to fourth place during that stretch. It was horrible but it made the rest of the season pretty easy for them.
The Chicago Cubs defeated the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night.
Everyone was wondering what it would take for the Cubs to come out of this. A matchup between Alec Mills and Zack Wheeler didn’t seem to favor them at all. Wheeler has been one of the best pitchers in the National League so far this season so beating him was going to be tough, especially with a wild card like Alec Mills on the mound.
