Note: Even though I'm wrong, I'm going to leave this post up as testament to the fact that I have become too dependent on the Internet. The fact is that the Cubs won 2 out of 3 from the Pirates. They did not get the sweep. I based my information on the the page, which listed the Cubs winning all three games. I went back to look at the schedule and it shows the truth. Despite what the page says, the Cubs lost the first game of the series 3-2. Please don't be sucked in by the Internet. She is a cruel mistress...

The Cubs swept the Pirates in three games to surge into third place in the NL Central. The three game sweep improved the Cubs record to 12-14, just half a game behind second place Cincinnati and five games behind division leading Milwaukee.

The Cubs offense came alive against the Pirates highly regarded pitching staff, scoring 23 runs in the series. The Cubs pitching staff wasn’t bad, giving up 13 runs in three games to the Pirates, but they did give up six runs in each of the first two games of the series.

The Cubs have an off day today and will take on the Washington Nationals at Wrigley beginning Friday. The goal this weekend is to move into second place and then start winning series. The Brewers aren’t going to keep winning 70% of their games, so the Cubs need to concentrate on playing good baseball, getting above .500 and letting the Brewers come back to them.
