What we learned: August 14, 2014

Today's lessons include similarities between the Cubs & Brewers, the truth behind the Brewers struggles to hit bad pitchers, and the truth of clutch and confidence.

Yesterday's Results

Cubs 4, Brewers 2

Kyle Lohse wasn't pitching his best yesterday, and an injury didn't help him at all. He gave up four runs in three innings before being removed from the game due to a sprained ankle. Marco Estrada came in and kept the Brewers in the game, but the offense couldn't recover. Home runs from Rickie Weeks and Martin Maldonado were the only scoring for the Brewers in the loss.
