Cubs play and lose another close one

Here’s a question to ponder today: Which would you rather lose: a close game or a blow out?

The Cubs are 5-13 this season and every one of their games have been decided by four runs or less.

Of their five wins, they have won a pair by one run and one each by two runs, three runs, and four runs.

Here are the Cubs losses this season

In addition, the Cubs have blown five save opportunities this season remarkably by five different pitchers
