So....Cubs shut the Pirates out into the bottom of the 9th with another stellar Quintana outing, Kimbrell our Supertstar closer comes in and gives up a home run in his first pitch. Now Strop is in, , if the bullpen gives this game up I will blow a gasket!
*update....game over Cubs win, whew!!!
Officially tied for 1st again in the NL Central, Cubs win, fly the flag Hozer.
NL Central standings heading into August 19th:
Brewers 64-60 (2 back)
Reds 58-65 (7.5 back)
Pirates 51-72 (14.5 back)
Cubs 10 game road trip over, thankfully. Cubs get a much needed rest tomorrow and do not play on Monday. Next 3 games are against the Giants at Wrigley. Hamels pitches Tuesday
