The Chicago Cubs somehow took a series from their nemesisVincent Pariseon June 27, 2022 at 1:00 pm

The Chicago Cubs are having a dreadful season. They didn’t come in with any big playoff hopes or anything like that but some believed that they would at least be a respectable team. Unfortunately, that hasn’t even been close to the case.

In the month of June, they have exactly seven wins so far out of 24 games. That is as disgusting as you can get in Major Lague Baseball. They sit at 28-45 which is good for the fifth-worst record in all of baseball. That is only going to get worse as they trade away the good players they have left.

Luckily for them, one of those seven wins came on Sunday against their most bitter rival in the St. Louis Cardinals. That clinched a series victory over their nemisis that went into the series in first place of the National League Central Division.

Now, the Milwaukee Brewers have passed them by a game for sole possession of the division lead. The Cubs don’t want to be helping either of those two teams but they will enjoy trying to spoil the hopes of anyone on their schedule (especially the Cardinals).

The Chicago Cubs took down the St. Louis Cardinals for a big series win.

In this Sunday win, the Cubs bested the Cardinals in the 10th inning. Willson Contreras hit the go-ahead hit in the top of the inning before David Robertson came in and locked down the win in the bottom of the inning.

They scored all six of these runs in the win without hitting a single home run which is impressive for a team like the Cubs. Now, they move forward as they try to just get through this season with a clear plan for the future.

The Cubs are off on Monday but they have a three-game series coming up against the Cincinnati Reds. That is going to be a tough series for both as they are two teams battling it out for last place in the division.

Following that tough series, it becomes even harder (by a lot) as the Boston Red Sox are coming to town. As we saw with the Cubs’ visit to play the New York Yankees, this will be the first time in a long time that the Cubs host the Red Sox.

The Cubs are hoping that they gained some momentum from this series so they can bring it forward against the Reds and Red Sox. When you knock your biggest rival out of first place (and are a wildly worse team), it has to help your confidence.
