With Wednesday's doubleheader sweep, the Cubs are assured of no worse than 5-1 record against the Braves this season, pending the result of Thursday's series finale. That's the best record by percentage the Cubs have ever had in a season series against Atlanta. In both 1969 and '84, the Cubs took 9 of 12 (.750) from the Braves; in '99, the Cubs went 5-2 (.714).
Also, the Cubs have now won seven road games in a row, in which they have outscored opponents 59-19, and in all but one of those games, the Cubs have scored at least 7 runs.
My question is, when are the Cubs going to start playing as well at home as they do on the road?
Ted Lilly (11-6) faces Tom Glavine (2-3) Thursday at 6pm CDT.
