It’s a blue flag day at Wrigley.
Chris Johnson hit his third home run of the series and may ask for a trade to the Cubs. The killer blow was a Tommy La Stella field goal double in the seventh that put the Braves up 10-2. The Cubs rallied in the eighth to make it interesting, but the Braves have Craig Kimbrel, so there wasn’t really anything to worry about.
The Braves close out the first half a percentage point behind the Natspos. It could be better, but it could be worse.
The big news today remains the one game suspension of Dan Uggla for…well, know one really knows. My barber doesn’t think he won’t be a Brave much longer. It could be that Uggla has sat on the bench in an Atlanta uniform for the last time.
I don’t want to speak out of turn, but I assume Alex (or someone) will have some cool retrospects on the first half over the next few days, so stay tuned.
