All good things must come to an end, as Al headlined his recap.
The seven-game winning streak was fun and it sure would have been fun to have played spoiler against the Reds for the fourth time in five games over the last month.

A bounce here or a few feet there, this might have been a different game and the Cubs might have eight straight wins.
Starter Adrian Sampson appeared to get stronger as his start went on.
