Bookie Beat Down June 4 - Chicago Cubs

Written by:
Published on:

The Chicago Cubs enter the new week 8-2 over their last ten games and 33-23 overall, definitely causing the books fits.

They just finished their best week of the year.

It included masterful pitching from ace Jon Lester, timely hitting without sluggers Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo and an element of surprise that made a 6-1 trip extremely enjoyable.

“There are games we could have lost that we won,” Maddon said Sunday after a 2-0 victory that completed a four-game sweep of the Mets. “That’s what you should be saying when you’re good. When you break it down, it went in your favor because you did those little things well. That’s what we’re talking about. That’s what gets you over the top.”

It may not get much better for the books as Chicago prepares to take on Philadelphia starting Tuesday.  They have won four of the last six meetings and nine of the last thirteen.  Only one of those four Phillies victories was on the road.
