Justin Steele is pitching at a pb2-9 (best) level, but we only allow one grade updates to our preseason projected cards so in the game we could only upgrade him from a PB 4-7 (average) one spot to pitch as a pb2-7 Here is his card against the debut Royals team as the Cubs must do well to get close to the playoffs.
In a virtual do or die, the Cubs failed to score for 9 innings, but Justin Steele saved them with 8 scoreless innings, and Candelario hit a 3-run homer in the 11th for a 4-1 lead.
The Cubs fell behind 3-0 and 5-3 in the second gamez but Canderlio was again the hero. His double in the 7th tied the game 4-4, then Matt Mervis had a walk off single in the 10th for a second straight extra inning winz 6-5. The Cubs improve to 28-32 to within two games of the Giants for the last playoff spot.
