CUBS TIE BEST AUGUST IN OVER 80 YEARS With 22-6 Record
Let’s revisit my first tweet from last nights’s game versus the Pirates and I quote…
E-6 on Addy #TheGlove….I know FOR SURE he will make up for that!!

He more than made up for it as Russell made an amazing catch in the top of the 7th and also drove in 2 runs as the Cubs dodged a late comeback to beat the Pirates 6-5 and sweep the 3 game series.
Jason Hammel got back to form as he went 6 innings giving up 3 hits while striking out 6.
“I felt really confident but it was all about the defense today. We’re spoiled. These guys are very impressive. We now have 2 candidates for play of the year between Addy & Riz,” says Hammel (He is 9-1 with a 1.77 era in 13 starts at Wrigley this year).
