Well the Cubs went 5-2 on this road trip so you have to count it as a success, It ended how it started with a win. The only frustrating part is that the two games that the Cubs lost the Cardinals also lost on those days. Thus squandering an oppertunity to gain some ground on them. But at least we have held our own in second place for about a week. The Phillies series had been somewhat dissapointing until today for the fact that the offense wasnt performing the way it was in Washington coming up with clutch hits. But today they were rolling. Good road trip and hopefully we can have an even better homestand.
