5/16 What's wrong here …
The Cubs are hitting .282 in May, 16 points higher than they did in April (.266), but have gone 4-9 to start the month. The team also has improved its on-base percentage and slugging percentage this month.
But, the Cubs’ May ERA is 5.54, which is more than 1 1/2 runs higher than the 3.88 ERA they posted in April.
