100th loss looms for Cubs
CHICAGO – The magic number is 100.
Forget playoff dreams or a run at a .500 record – those hopes were dashed months ago. All that’s left for the Cubs is avoiding the dreaded 100-loss season.
No Cubs team has lost 100 games since they racked up 103 losses in 1966 to tie the franchise record, originally set in 1962. The Cubs (58-90) won’t have an easy road in the final 14 games after losing to the Cincinnati Reds, 3-0, Tuesday. They’re in the middle of a stretch of 10 games in 10 days against playoff contenders.
