Clement Lets the Bullpen Stay in the Pen

A huge preformance by Clement today. He gets a complete game 4-2 win over the hottest team in the NL. The Cubs pull within a game of the Wild Card and the central, so depending on tonights outcome in the other game. It was good to see Miller hit a HR that gave the Cubs some much needed support in the 8th inning.

Looking past today, now it is time for Estes to pitch again. He has been terrible of late and tomorrow he needs to win. If the Cubs can find a way, then I like the chances, but with a few double headers coming up I think he is not leaving the rotation anytime soon. This probably means he will pitch game 5 of the Cardinals series on Thursday.

A bigger look later.
