    Brewers really got the absolute best pitching scenario they could've hoped for this weekend on both ends.

    Whatever. **** em. We really only need to win one game to be fine, relatively speaking.

    I forgot the exact scenario but if I remember correctly weren't they down by a lot more when the 9th inning started? And weren't they like 6 games back in the division for a while and this game put them over the top for good?

    This game, I rather distinctly recall, pulled them within 3.5 of Milwaukee. They'd trailed by like 9 or 10 games at one point.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007_Chicago_Cubs_season

    They finished June with a key series at home against the first-place Milwaukee Brewers starting on June 29. Rich Hill once again took the mound, but gave up five runs in the first inning and lasted just three innings.[16] The Cubs relievers kept the game close, but they still trailed 5–3 going into the bottom of the ninth against Francisco Cordero. Going into the game, Cordero led the league with 27 saves, and had blown only two.[16] After retiring the first player in the inning, Cordero gave up back-to-back singles, and with runners at first and third allowing the potential winning run to come to the plate in the player of Derrek Lee. Lee hit a deep fly ball, but the wind knocked it down and was caught for a sacrifice fly.[16] That made it two outs bringing third baseman Aramis Ramírez to the plate. Ramirez hit the first pitch into the left-center bleachers, winning the game 6–5.[16] The victory pulled the Cubs back to .500, and trimmed the Brewers lead down to 6˝ games. The Cubs ended the first half of the season 4.5 games out of first place, behind the Milwaukee Brewers, with a record of 44 wins and 43 losses.

    This was one of my favorite Cubs regular seasons. I still can't believe they got swept by the Dbacks

    Lets start off with a win, hopefully Lackey can be good. Wish we could have gotten Schwarber in the lineup, this is the type of pitcher I think he could hammer.
