The Chicago Cubs 1985 season opened with high hopes as the Cubs had won the National League East title the year before. However, injuries were a major factor as four of the Cubs' starting pitchers were on the disabled list at the same time. In early June, the Cubs were still in first place, battling the St. Louis Cardinals and the New York Mets for the division. However, Rick Sutcliffe, Steve Trout, Scott Sanderson and Dennis Eckersley all were injured, and the Cubs went on a 13-game losing streak that effectively eliminated them from contention. Shawon Dunston made his Major League debut. He struggled early on, so the Cubs sent him back to Iowa in early May. However, once he returned, it spelled the end for Larry Bowa, who was released in August and picked up by the New York Mets.
