Posted on October 19, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Chicago Cubs are still alive. If Game 4 was Jake Arrieta’s last start in front of the Wrigley Field faithful, he certainly went out in style, striking out nine while allowing just one run over 6.2 innings. He managed to cool down a Dodgers lineup that […]

Posted on October 18, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine After their 6-1 win in Game 3 Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers are just one game away from reaching the World Series. Yu Darvish out-pitched Kyle Hendricks, allowing the Dodgers to get their bats going and essentially cruise to their sixth straight postseason win. One more […]

Posted on October 17, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine You can’t say that the NLCS hasn’t been a competitive and compelling series, yet the Los Angeles Dodgers lead 2-0 as the series moves back to Chicago for Game 3 on Tuesday night. The Dodgers have come up with three massive home runs at the right time […]

Posted on October 15, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine A controversial play at the plate and the sequential ejection of Cubs manager Joe Maddon were the highlights of an intense Game 1 of the NLCS, a game the Dodgers took 5-2. In part because of that play at the plate, the Cubs were unable to hold […]

Posted on October 14, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine Well, this looks familiar. In a repeat of last year’s NLCS, the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers will battle it out for the right to represent the National League in the World Series. The only difference will be that this time around the Dodgers will have […]

Posted on October 13, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine Well, the baseball postseason is down to the final four teams. The division round of the playoffs included a lot more offense than any of us expected, but there was no shortage of drama, at least in three of the four series, not to mention the wild-card […]

Posted on October 10, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine In a good old-fashioned pitchers duel, the Chicago Cubs managed to squeak out a 2-1 win over the Washington Nationals in Game 3 of the NLDS, giving the Cubs a 2-1 series lead. Neither team has woken up offensively in this series, although Anthony Rizzo may be […]

Posted on October 9, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine For the first time since winning last year’s World Series, the Chicago Cubs will host a playoff game at Wrigley Field on Monday.

Posted on October 7, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Chicago Cubs became the first road team to win a game this postseason when they took Game 1 of the NLDS from the Washington Nationals.

Posted on October 5, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The National League Division Series gets underway Friday night when the Chicago Cubs visit the Washington Nationals.

Posted on September 28, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine It was touch and go for a while, but the reigning world champions will be back in the playoffs to defend their title.

Arrieta will start Thursday when the Cubs begin a critical four-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers. Getting the start on Thursday will allow Arrieta […]

Posted on September 10, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine As they look to close out another NL Central division title, the Chicago Cubs are welcoming back an important piece of the puzzle. The Cubs activated catcher Willson Contreras off the DL prior to Sunday’s series finale against the Milwaukee Brewers. Contreras was not in the starting […]

Posted on September 6, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine Chicago Cubs ace Jake Arrieta has been diagnosed with a hamstring strain that will cause him to miss at least one or two starts. Arrieta underwent an MRI on Tuesday that confirmed the injury. He was forced out of Monday’s start against the Pirates after just 2.1 […]
