We’ve endured much frustration while following the 2013 Cubs. We’re being patient because we know better days are on their way, but every once in awhile, today’s Cubs bring us joy. After winning Friday and Saturday, the Cubs have won their first series at Busch Stadium since 2010, and have the opportunity to sweep the Cards with a win today. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Starting for the Cubs today is Edwin Jackson (7-12, 4.96). You may remember that he had a magical July (1.83 ERA), then allowed seven runs in his first August start against the Phillies. Let’s hope to see July Edwin make a return today. The Cardinals will start Joe Kelly (3-3, 2.98). He’s only allowed two runs over 23 innings in his last four starts.
Game time is 1:15 Central. TV Broadcast is on WGN. Let’s go team!
