The loss to the Brewers was the Cubs' fourth in a row and dropped them to 6-7.
The power-hitting champs striking out too much and getting out-homered by lesser teams? He allowed four hits and a walk in the inning and the Mets took the lead on Bruce's first homer of the night, a three-run shot to right with two outs.
The Cubs slowly clawed their way back against Milwaukee's bullpen, however. Brewers closer Neftali Feliz was able to get Anthony Rizzo to ground out for the second out of the inning, but Addison Russell sent the crowd home happy.
Russell's second home run of the season helped Chicago take two of three from Milwaukee after dropping the series opener Monday.
So which is it? He allowed 10 home runs in 53 relief innings last year and had given up one already this year.
If you claim to know, you're lying.
The Chicago Cubs handing out 1,908 World Series rings and pieces of championship jewelry to members of their organization, but there's a catch. "In general, the stories are probably not going to be about controversies within that clubhouse, because I think we have a good group". "We just have to figure out the best way to deploy it".
Josh Phegley hit a two-run double in a four-run first that gave a quick lead to Jesse Hahn (1-1), who allowed one run and two hits over six innings, struck out four and walked four. In fact, many warned since the winter of the challenges that include the shorter offseason, the trappings of sudden celebrity, the so-called hangover (physical and emotional) and the simple odds stacked against a repeat for anybody. "We're just not hitting up to our capabilities yet. So it was really good to see".
Chicago went 4-5 on its first homestand this year as World Series champion. The start of Wednesday's game was delayed 55 minutes because of rain.
After a four-game losing streak, seeing Chicago show this ability to win two consecutive games in comeback fashion is certainly an encouraging sign moving forward.
