Game Notes – Brewers 5, Cubs 0

Written by , Posted in General

I wrote in this week’s ESPN Power Rankings that “The Cubs have posted a .545 winning percentage since May 26, which trails only the Dodgers, Cardinals and Pirates in the NL.” With a four game series against one of the worst teams in baseball, you’d think that win percentage would continue to rise. Unfortunately it took a little dip Monday night. Thankfully there are three games to go.
