After losing four straight games, all Chicago Cubs fans wanted to see was them scrape out some kind of win to stop the bleeding. That is especially since they are playing a Pittsburgh Pirates team that has no business beating the Cubs as badly as they had in the series up to that point.
Well, they stopped the bleeding in a big way. The Chicago Cubs defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates by a final score of 21-0. It was as incredible of a performance as the team has ever had in a regular-season game. Since 1901, it is the largest shutout victory in the history of the franchise.
