Cubs Sunday Game Thread: Sweep?

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?4708broom

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.

Today’s lineup:

DeJesus cf

Lake lf

Rizzo 1b

Castillo c

Schierholtz rf

Murphy 3b

Castro ss

Barney 2b

EJackson p

Game time is 1:15 Central. TV Broadcast is on WGN. Let’s go team!

    Seems to me that anytime we mention good things for the Cubs we jinx them. So today I’m going to say that we will play like shit and never sweep the Cards at Busch.

    Were already down 2-0 in the first.

    It’s my fault.

    I think this is the Cubs telling me I need to go on another vacation where I have virtually no contact with the outside world again.

    Well, that game was okay until the Cardinals began scoring runs… Good Night, LOHO…
