The Cubs had quite a weekend against the Pirates, scoring 47 runs in 3 games. Here’s a look at the some of the best Cubs notes from the series:
- Scored 47 runs, the most in a three-game series for the Cubs since 1894.
- 47 runs in a series are the most by any MLB team since 2000.
- Posted a .496 OBP & 1.368 OPS in the series.
- Set a franchise record with 14 homers in a three-game set.
- Became the 5th team since 1900 to score at least 14 runs in 3 straight games.
- All while the pitching staff allowed 0 homers.
It doesn’t get much better than that for the Cubs, who are now just 2.0 games behind in the NL Central and 1.0 game ahead in the 2nd Wild Card spot.
