Offseason

Regular season

In 1977, the franchise experienced one of its biggest collapses. The Cubs hit a high-water mark on June 28th at 47-22 with an 8 1/2 game NL East lead led by Bobby Murcer (27 Hr/89 RBI), and Rick Reuschel (20-10). However, the Philadelphia Phillies cut the lead to two by the All-star break, as the Cubs sat 19 games over .500, but they swooned late in the season, going 20-40 after July 31st, finishing in fourth place at 81-81.
