11 out of 13 ain’t bad

With today’s spectacular win over the dreaded White Sox, the Cubs have impressively won 11 of the last 13 series-opening games.  That’s an incredible stat, not unlike a pitcher getting strike one with the first pitch to a hitter. Winning the opening game of a series puts the opposing team on the defensive and slides momentum slightly in the Cubs favor. So much of this game is about trends and momentum its just great to see a stat like this.
