The Chicago Cubs have been playing some pretty good baseball this week. After losing to the Chicago White Sox on Sunday, they took two of four from the first-place Milwaukee Brewers and then the series opener against their rival the St. Louis Cardinals.
In the 7-5 victory, they avoided a serious injury disaster. In the 8th inning, Willson Contreras was hit by a pitch in his upper ankle area. He tried to stay in the game but he couldn’t and walked off the field on his own power. It was surely a scary sight for a team that can’t afford to lose its stars.
