“We have a really good team, and I think we have the right guy leading us and the right pieces that we added to complement our team last year,” said 3rd baseman Kris Bryant, last year’s NL Rookie of the Year. “It’s going to be a whole lot of fun this year. I’m excited about what we can do. Everyone on this team feels that way.

“There is a target on our back now;” manager Joe Madden said. “People think we’re the team to beat. It’s like I told our guys on the first day of spring — embrace the target. Be glad that we have the kind of team that people expect big things from.”

Classic Battle of Pitchers ends in Nats Victory

On a night when League Leader in Home Runs Bryce Harper notched his 18th of the season, this game came down to some stellar pitching.

Cubbie Jon Lester gave up two runs  (one earned) on seven hits to include a home run.  He also had two walks with ten strikeouts in seven innings.

“Max threw the ball just a little bit better than I did,” Lester said. “Obviously, we lost, and that’s not the ultimate goal, but if you’re a pitcher or just a purist of the game and like watching pitching matchups, that was fun tonight. That’s what it lived up to be.”

The Cubs begin a three game stand against the KC Royals today.  Affordable tickets and great seats are still available so get yours today and help support your Chicago Cubs!
