Cubs Win Series

The Cubs took 2 of 3 against the Pirates, but there were a few things that stood out. Prior was dominent on Saturday and Cubs pulled out a victory in 10 innings.

Sunday's game was disapointing. I was at my family Easter gathering and I kept running to the back room to check the game to only find out that Estes was back to his old form. Estes had no control. Granted many of the plays should have been made in the 2nd inning, but still Estes could not find the plate. When he did the the Pirates kept dumping singles into the outfield. The Cubs improved to 12-7 overall and are sill in first place. An interesting note, if the Cubs can win 5 more games in April then they can break the club record of 16 wins. Personally I had no clue the Cubs have never won more the 16 in April.

Coming up tomorrow the Cubs will face the Padres in another night game.
