Chicago Cubs Lineup: Cubs Look to Continue Domination Over Pirates
The Cubs absolutely OWN the Pirates this year. Yes, it feels good. They’ve outscored the Bucs 44-13 in seven games. And yeah, that’s straight up ownership.
The Cubs look to keep the rhythm going with Jon Lester on the mound. You could say Jon’s been pretty good lately, he won the NL player of the week last week with a 0.00 ERA and 2-0 record in two starts. So, no, things do not get any easier for the Pirates and their happy-go-lucky-throw-the-ball-at-everyone manager, Clint Hurdle.
I’m sorry, that last thought just irritated me good. Here’s to hoping the Cubs crush the Bucs tonight.
