Chicago Cubs: Late game fireworks

Moving into the ninth inning, the Cubs were on the verge of another shutout. Thankfully, that’s not how things played out. Chicago played long ball and surprisingly fought their way to a respectable end.

Kris Bryant led off the inning with a sharp ground ball which Albies could not handle. Almost immediately following, Anthony Rizzo got a pitch belt high and cranked a no-doubter into the right-field seats.

In true Cubs fashion, Javier Baez jumped in on the fun, going back-to-back with Rizzo. After loading the bases, the team was able to push another run across before ultimately falling 9-4.

dark. Next. There's no way the Cubs can play this badly all year

No matter how the game went, it is a good sign that there is a fight in this team, no matter how impossible the odds seem to be on a given night. All I know is that it is a very long season, with a ton more peaks and valleys. What is going on right now is bleak, however, do not lose faith Cubs fans. We have a long way to go.
