3 lessons learned from Chicago Cubs last series against Miami Marlins
For the first time during the 2023 Major League Baseball regular season, the Chicago Cubs were swept in a series as they lost all three of their weekend games against the Miami Marlins.
The concerns that have been present over the recent stretch of games for the Cubs were certainly on display this weekend but there were also some lessons learned from the past three games against the Marlins.
3 lessons learned from Chicago Cubs last series against Miami Marlins - The team will not concede a game
During the 2022 season, if the Cubs went down early, the game was over. There was no hope of a comeback as the Cubs did not have the offense that would allow them to catch up in games in which they trailed by more than three runs.
The Cubs' offense in 2023 has proven that is not the case this season. The Cubs already had a historic comeback victory over the Seattle Mariners earlier this season and while the team was swept by the Marlins this past weekend, the team never gave up.
The Cubs' ability to come back was on display in their Saturday loss to the Marlins. In that game, the Cubs were faced with an early 5-0 deficit before coming within 1 run of tying the game in the final inning.
The Cubs offense has been a surprise this season and the month of May will determine how sustainable it is. For now, this Cubs' team is never truly out of a game.
