Cubs in Longest Losing Streak Since 1997, is their Season Already Over?
What is happening on the North side of Chicago? The Cubs lost their 10th consecutive game to the Pirates on Friday night by a score of 1-0.
This is the Cubs’ longest losing streak since they set their club record of 14 back in 1997. They ended that season with a record of 68 wins and 94 losses.
This year might even be worse.
Last night Ryan Dempster pitched a great game, allowing only one run over 7 1/3 innings, but when your team doesn’t give you any offense, it just doesn’t matter.
Dempster had this to say about the losing streak:
“It’s hard for us — 10 games in a row is not a lot of fun…..It doesn’t make coming to the ballpark fun, it doesn’t make going out there and playing fun. We’ve just got to fight through it.”
The Cubs had 10 hits and runners in scoring position in all but two innings, but could not make anything happen.
So what do you folks think, what can the Cubs do to get out of their funk and rise out of the NL Central cellar?
