2022 Series Thread
The Cubs (7-9) dropped 3 of 4 to the Pirates despite outscoring their opponents 29 to 12. The sandwiched a blowout between three close losses. They begin a 6-game road trip with three games the reigning World Series Champions. Atlanta enters the series at 7-10. See below for daily matchups.
The Cubs (6-6) welcome the Pirates (5-7) to Wrigley for the first time this season. Seiya Suzuki comes into the series having reached base safely in all 12 of his MLB games so far and leading the majors in OBP and walk percentage and third in slugging. See below for the daily matchups.
The Cubs split the series in Colorado to maintain a winning record going into a seven-game homestand. They'll take on a 5-5 Tampa Bay club to begin the week. This will be the first time these clubs have faced off since 2017. See below for daily matchups.
The 3-2 Cubs take their game to loftier climes for the next four games. The offensive core of Happ, Contreras, and especially Suzuki have been scalding the ball thus far and should be happy to have thin air and broad power alleys in front of them. See below for daily matchups.
The Cubs took two out of three from last year's NL Central champs and nearly pulled another from the grip of a Brewer's staff that put a lot of hurt on the 2021 team in the early going. In their first away series of 2022, they'll take on some softer competition from fellow NL Central basement dwellers, the Pittsburgh Pirates. See below for the daily matchups.
