The Cubs continued to play their worst baseball at the worst possible time last night, stranding 10 in a 6-4 loss to the Marlins. The Brewers, however, helped out by losing 9-5 to the Padres, which holds the Cubs division lead at two with three games left to play.
Florida has now won 10 in a row against the Cubs dating back to 2006. Despite the embarrassing sweep, the Cubs remain optimistic heading into a three-game series with the Cardinals with the magic number at 2. "The bottom line is we're confident in here," said Ryan Dempster. "If we get a little help that's great, but we do control our own destiny."
