The Atlanta Braves trade with the Los Angeles Angels to send star shortstop Andrelton Simmons in exchange for prospect Sean Newcomb has yet to pay off yet.
On Thursday Newcomb recorded his 8th loss of the season as the Braves fell to the Cubs 6-2 on the final day of August.
The Braves showed life during the 8th inning but were unable to pull through.
Even though the young Newcomb could not pull off the win, maybe another rookie can shine in the spotlight. Saturday on the mound will be Lucas Sims who will be recording his 8th start of his career.
Sims has yet to face the Cubs but is known for his extreme slider and curveball.
Well, Well, Well, the Chicago Cubs are back folks. After a sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Cubs returned home to make some history.
Kris Bryant launched a home run in the 6th inning to make him the first player in franchise history and the 12th in the Majors to hit 25 or more home runs in each of his first three seasons.
With the Cubs red-hot, this will give pitcher Jon Lester the perfect opportunity to come back and hopefully return to his normal self.
Lester has been sidelined with a bothering shoulder that sat him out for a couple of weeks.
