So who feels better today: the Phillies or Cubs?
The Cubs took the first two games of their four-game series against the Phillies at Wrigley Field, coming back in the eighth inning Thursday and the sixth inning Friday. But the Phillies played better baseball in victories Saturday and Sunday to split the series, including yesterday's 5-3 victory.
The Phillies feel pretty good about the split because the Cubs entered the series with the best overall record and best home record in baseball. It showed them that they can play with anybody, not that they needed much of a confidence boost.
