The Cubs hit into a pretty strange triple play in Philadelphia, en route to dropping two of three to the lowly Phillies. A nice shoestring grab was made in the outfield and Cubs baserunners didn’t tag up, thinking that the ball would not be caught. Easy as 7-4-3. Now they return to Wrigley Field to face the Pittsburgh Pirates, who are desperate for a series win as they chase October, and the upstart Atlanta Braves over the Labor Day weekend.
