Series Prediction: Cubs sweep Braves, offense gets on track

Look, I get it. The Cubs’ offense has been extremely inconsistent to start the season. The fact that they scored just one run Thursday after posting 13 Wednesday is a prime example of this.

At the same time, Schwarber and Happ look like they are back on track at the plate. Bryant is tearing it up day-in and day-out; outside of Thursday, Báez has been tearing it up recently after his own slow start.

The Cubs are going to start hitting more consistently, and it will start this weekend against the Braves. It begins with hitting with runners in scoring position, however, so keep watch to see how the team fares in that department.
