The Cubs won both games this weekend in VERY chilly weather. The bats continue to break, and make for good firewood given the temperatures in the Boston area!
Saturday 10/4: Cubs Beat Red Sox 10-7
The Cubs came from behind to nip the Red Sox after trailing 5-3 through the first 2 innings. Matt hit 3 for 3 with 2 singles and a double, scoring 3 times. Eric also hit 3 for 3 with 3 singles and both Bobby and Lucas hit 2 for 3. Jonathan hit a towering double that nearly left the park as a home run, and Ben came home to score after unbelievably stretching a single into 3 extra bases by capitalizing on errors. Dominant pitching by Bobby over 3 innings kept the Red Sox bats quiet with 9 strikeouts and only 1 additional run scored in the 5th inning.
Sunday 10/5: Cubs Fold White Sox 7-3
Great game which was scoreless until the 4th inning. Matt was starting pitcher for the first 3 innings, allowing only 1 hit and striking out 6. Madhav, Jonathan and Eric wrapped up the game, striking out 9 more and allowing only 3 runs. In the meantime, the Cubs bats kept the heat on with Matt hitting 3 for 3 with 3 singles & 2 runs scored and Bobby hitting 3 for 3 with 2 singles, a double and 2 runs. Raghav, Kile and Robert also got key hits and scored runs with great heads-up baserunning.
