Cubs News: Maddon on fixing problems: "There's no magic potion"

by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Cubs lost 2-1 on Wednesday to the San Diego Padres for their sixth straight loss which is the longest losing streak by the Cubs under manager Joe Maddon. The team's record is now 25-27 and fans are disappointed with the team's performance on the latest road trip.

Maddon knows that the hitting will turn around for these young sluggers but there is no quick or easy fix.

“There’s no magic potion,” Maddon said to reporters on Wednesday after the loss. “We just got to keep going out there and playing. I believe in our guys, 100 percent, wholeheartedly. These are good, young players. They’ve shown it in the past. They’re going to show it to you again.”

The Cubs will try to break their season-high losing streak as they travel home to Wrigley Field to begin a three-game series with their rival Cardinals on Friday afternoon.
