5/25 Losing stinks

The Cubs’ entered Friday’s game riding a nine-game losing streak.

“I’ve been through a 12-game losing streak once in my career and it grinds on you and it gets frustrating, there’s no question about it,” Dale Sveum said. “It’s human nature. Most of the time it turns around. It turned arond last time I was part of it. We were 20 games over .500 after that.”

That was in 1987 with the Brewers, who actually began that season 13-0, but lost 12 straight May 3-19. They finished 91-71.

“You always say even great teams have a six- to 10-game losing streak in the course of a year,” Sveum said. “Obviously, we’ve got to get a lot of things fixed — we’ve got to score runs and be better in the bullpen and things like that. You have to win one before you do anything.”
