The Chicago Cubs rallied late against the San Francisco Giants, but the deficit was too big as they dropped the opener, 6-4. While John Lackey wasn’t perfect in his start, David Ross was EXACTLY that over on Dancing with the Stars.
With the wind blowing out at Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs and San Francisco Giants looked to be set up for a slugfest. The Giants got the memo, but the Cubs were a little late to the party. After falling behind 6-0, the Cubs were able to score four runs in the eighth, with two-run home runs from Javier Baez and then Ben Zobrist. But the rally fell short as the Cubs fell in the opener to the Giants.
David Ross is trying to go out on top again, this time on DWTS. Ross entered this season with the lowest odds of winning the Mirror Ball. But here he is, finishing with a perfect score in his final dance and now simply waiting on the votes for Tuesday. When Ross says “go big or go home”, he’s always going to opt for big.
The Cubs may be defending champs, but they’re still a young team. And with that, you’ll get the highs and the lows that come with it. These same struggles were part of last year’s run, but they happened in the middle of the season. This year they’ve started with them. It’s a matter of ebbs and flow, and we just have to ride this with them.
