4/21 A little pep talk

Cubs manager Lou Piniella gave the players a short pep talk before Wednesday’s game.

“It took about 20 seconds,” Piniella said. “I told them to relax and have fun.”

“We had a good meeting and really nice words form Lou,” Carlos Silva said. “I saw a different team today. Everybody was screaming, laughing. I think we had fun a little bit today. Hopefully, we continue. We have an unbelievable team. We just have to put everything together and just keep trusting ourselves.”

End result was a 9-3 win over the Mets, snapping a four-game losing streak.
