Cubs Feeling Patriotic

I have to say this for the Chicago Cubs, when they fire on all cylinders, it’s a high octane joyride. That sounds like a review for an upcoming Stallone movie instead of a baseball game.

Yesterday’s dominate win against the former Montreal Expos, the Washington Nationals 7-2 put the Cubs at two wins in a row and continues their push to the playoffs. Against the backdrop of trade rumours involving Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija, the Cubs stuck to their game plan providing and once again, silencing their detractors.

“It was a grind for me,” Hammel said of his outing, in which he improved to 4-1 with a 2.35 ERA at Wrigley. “It wasn’t that easy today — not that it ever is. I was struggling to find my slider command and missing up with it a lot. I was able to command my fastball to keep them honest and mixed in the changeups.”

Do I feel good going into today’s road trip with my family? You better believe it. A two game winning streak, a chance to sweep the series and then they take on Boston.

We’re going to be up in the grandstand between home and first. Section 16. Edwin, you’ll be pitching on the first of July. You have to win one for us, buddy. I’m counting on you.
