Blowing an early 3-0 lead, the Chicago Cubs suffered an eighth-inning implosion that resulted in the San Francisco Giants pulling off a come-from-behind win in the series opener.
For the Cubs, this road trip may mean more than any other, so far, this season.
Where do we start with in terms of action on Sunday as so much was going on throughout the day? If you want to count AZL teams, the Cubs played a total of eight games Sunday afternoon with the Cubs going 5-3 overall.
The Cubs, now 18-27 on the road, better figure it out- and fast. 19 of their next 25 are road games.
