I’ve read somewhere that the Cubs rotation is pretty weak. It hasn’t been in 2013 and it certainly wasn’t bad yesterday as Scott Feldman and the Cubs proved to the New York Mets that they’re for real in an 8-2 victory.
Scott Feldman was fantastic on the mound as well as behind the plate. He knocked out a double in the fourth inning that could have been a home run.
“I got myself into some trouble in the first couple innings, but was able to right the ship at the right time and make a pitch when I needed to,” Feldman said. “After those first couple innings, guys were running down those balls in the outfield and making plays.”
Ah, Scott’s humble too.
The win yesterday improves Scott’s totals to 4-0 for the season. Way to go Scott,”Mr. Fantastic” Feldman.
Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
Meanwhile, the newly inked Anthony Rizzo, added to his totals, sending his tenth home run into the bleachers for a souvenir. Nate Schierholtz collected his fifth home run of the season.
Yup folks, the Chicago Cubs are on a roll stretching their record to 18-24. You know what the best part is?
We’re better than the Brewers.
The Cubs finish up with the Mets today, then a break tomorrow before an important three game series with the Pirates starting Tuesday.
Game Time today is at 2;20 eastern.
