The Cubs may be 5.5 games out of 1st place but they might end up with some hardware by season's end. Perhaps not a World Series championship, but more likely the Comeback Player of the Year award.

The Game That Got Away

With the wind howling out, the Cubs sent their ace to the mound in hopes of sweeping the Brewers out of town. The brooms weren't needed unfortunately due to yet another bullpen collapse.
