Cubs, Indians split the series

The Cubs and Indians will come into this series with plenty riding on this. But between the two teams, the two will split the series and go about their merry way. The Cubs will struggle again in Chatwood’s start, as the walks will get to him again. If there is one thing you can say about a team that struggles to score runs? Walks kill. And they will once again do in Chatwood.

Lester, on the other hand, will be brilliant in his time out. And with Bauer having thrown so many pitches in his first four starts, it might come back to bite him in the end. In fact, I might see Lester pulling the ‘bounce pass’ again for another out. Maybe even Lindor?

Next: Schwarber off to a strong start

It’s a short series, but one that will be filled with emotions as the Cubs and Indians will go at it, once again.
