6/10 What a mess

Did you notice the Brewers scored three runs in three different innings without a hit? Thursday’s sloppy play by the Cubs resulted in a 5-4, 10-inning loss, and they ended the nine-game, 11-day road trip against NL Central teams at 3-6. Ouch.

“We have to win no matter who we’re playing against,” starter Ryan Dempster said. “The more this season keeps getting later and later, the more losses pile up, we have to win more games, that’s the bottom line. Do whatever you can do to win more games.”

It’ll be a long drive back to Chicago on Interstate 94 for the Cubs.

“We haven’t been playing well and we know it,” Xavier Nady said. “We have to obviously turn things around sooner or later or it’s going to be a long year. Hopefully, going home will help us out and we’ll go from there.”
