Can the Chicago Cubs become more of a small ball team? Manager David Ross thinks so — but there are lineup challenges.
“We certainly believe we’ll bounce out of it, but it’s a time where we need to do those smaller things, work at bats, work walks, get guys over,” Sogard said after Saturday’s game. “Do a little small ball compared to relying on the home run all the time. We’ve got to find other ways to win than just by the long ball.”
