What was the score of the Chicago Cubs game last night?

The Chicago Cubs had the day off on Thursday and it came at an important time for the team. The Cubs were swept by the Houston Astros earlier this week with their loss on Wednesday being of the devastating variety. In the Cubs' game on Wednesday, the team had a 6-1 lead entering the eighth inning and that is when the game fell off the rails for the team and they wound up losing 7-6. The Cubs have now lost five consecutive games and this is the type of losing streak that the team was hoping to avoid when going about their roster construction this past offseason.

Probable Starting Pitchers

Marcus Stroman gets the start for the Chicago Cubs on Friday night against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
