It wasn’t easy, but the Cubs were able to take three of five from the Cardinals. A series that featured two doubleheaders and a couple of dramatic David Bote hits. Chicago’s offense has hit a rough patch as the bullpen has steadily improved.
The Cubs now welcome the crosstown White Sox to Wrigley for three games. The slugging Sox crushed the Tigers in a four-game sweep led by the red-hot Tim Anderson. The young Eloy Jimenez, Yoan Moncada, and Luis Robert mesh well with veteran Jose Abreu.
Lucas Giolito and Dallas Keuchel anchor a pretty good starting rotation. The bullpen has some holes, but closer Alex Colome has been lights out. At 15-11, the Sox have a legit shot at the playoffs and the talent to do it.
