Not exactly sure why that is, but they’ve just 38-53 all time against the Snakes…and having won just one series against them since 2003 (Cubs took four of six games in ’08)…a win tomorrow, of course, and the Cubs win this four-game series against the D-Backs.
That’s big, not only because it would make for a winning homestand, but also because it puts the Cubs above the .500 mark at home…where they’re 6-6.
Winning at home goes without saying. And with the Cubs in the middle of a stretch that sees them paying 15 of its next 21 games at home…this is an important couple of weeks.
Furthermore, Monday marks the end of 19-traight games without a break, which began April 14. Cubs are currently 9-9 during this stretch.
The month of May needs to be a spring board to catch St. Louis. If the 4.5 games back widens by June 1…the final curtain could easily drop on the North Siders.
