The Cubs scored exactly one run in each of their last 3 games, all via solo home runs. That hadn't happened to the franchise in the last 110 seasons, and it's first time since 2016 it happened in major league baseball. The Cubs offense has been stuck in neutral essentially since the all-star break, attempting to pull the ball way too often, according to Joe Maddon: "We have to stay in the middle of the field. That's the one time this year that I thought we were a pretty powerful offense."
