I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend as much as I did! Through scorching temperatures, rolling thunderstorms and trade rumors, we now find the Cubs riding their first three game winning streak of the summer. Sure, it doesn’t change much about the season, but it definitely feels good to see. Why not have a little fun? Here are the Wizzies
For the first time in the 2011 season, the Cubs have a three game winning streak. If we keep with the theme of wins against the Astros counting as a half of win, then we’re riding a 1.5 game win streak. Either way, it just feels good to win.
If Friday was only worth half a win, the Cubs picked up the other half Saturday behind a solid start from Randy Wells, homers from Marlon Byrd and Geovany Soto, and some clutch hitting. We beat the Astros. Hooray.
Carlos Zambrano pitched effectively wild and came away with a quality start, if you want to call it that, and his seventh win of the season behind the power of Alfonso Soriano and Aramis Ramirez. At the same time, it was against the Astros. Do we get credited with a full win for that?
