Great to see the Cubs bounce back and win the final game of the series against the Nationals. Jeff Samardzija pitched outstanding in the victory. Looking forward to seeing big Chris Volstad in his first start as a Cub at Wrigley tonight against the Brewers.
It was also nice to see the Triple-A Iowa Cubs make a big comeback yesterday over Round Rock. The I-Cubs charged back from a 5-2 deficit in the bottom of the eighth, led by an Anthony Rizzo three run home run. Then winning it in the ninth on a Brett Jackson one-out double scoring Matt Tolbert for a 6-5 victory.
Tomorrow we’ll get back to revealing more winners of the 2012 BOS-BCS Awards, with – The Santo, for best original Cubs content. So far we have given out the Ryno for fan favorite (by fan vote) to Bleacher Nation, and the Jolly Cholly for best Cubs humor, to Hire Jim Essian.
