The Chicago Cubs gave up on their season when they traded away Kris Bryant, Javier Baez, and Anthony Rizzo. Most people thought they would at least keep one of the three but they moved them all. The 2016 World Series champions as you know them are now nothing short of memory. They have moved on. However, the players that still remain deserve a lot of credit for the way that they have played in the second half.
On Monday, the Cubs pulled out a 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The Cubs scored three runs in the first inning to go up 3-0. They then allowed the Reds to tie it at 3 in the 6th. It would have been really easy to allow the playoff-hopeful Reds to take control but they didn’t. They buckled down and scored one run in the bottom of the 8th inning and it stood as the game-winner.
