The Cubs won on Saturday and bumped their lead in the NL Central back up to 2.5 games with Milwaukee’s loss to the Pirates.
Things have gotten dicey for Chicago in the division and part of the reason why is because Milwaukee has stayed hot for an extended period of time. The Cubs have also played better.
Going into Sunday, the Cubs have won three straight games by a single run but that can’t last forever. The offense has struggled, especially Kris Bryant, who has shown zero power since returning from a shoulder injury at the start of this month.
In nearly fifty at-bats since his return, Bryant has just five doubles, which account for all of his extra-base hits. He clearly isn’t right and the Cubs won’t go very far in a weak National League if he isn’t.
Time is running out on the Diamondbacks, who trail the Dodgers and Rockies by four and three-and-a-half games, respectively, in the division. The Rockies hold the last playoff spot in that weak NL entering Sunday.
So with just a dozen games left after Sunday, the Snakes have to win a lot and get a little lucky if they are to sneak into the playoffs. There’s a big one with Houston on Sunday before hosing this series. It hasn’t been an easy slate for the Diamondbacks down the stretch.
But Arizona has nothing to complain about. It could have put some serious distance between it and the rest of the NL West in May but it completely tripped up when everybody else was struggling. Now, the Dodgers and Rockies are playing good ball and the D’Backs don’t have the fire power to keep up.
