Now this was a fun game to watch! The Cubs scored the game’s only run in the bottom of the 8th, which means the entire crazy crowd stayed for the whole game on a gorgeous Thursday afternoon at Wrigley Field.
I have made this statement before, but perhaps it bears repeating, that Carlos Marmol has hall of fame stuff if he can just keep the walks down. And Lou needs to find a way to get Tyler Colvin in the lineup on a daily basis.
Cute little game from the Dodgers losing pitcher, rookie righthander John Ely who grew up in Chicago’s South ‘burbs and went to school with two of my first cousins. And is a White Sox fan. Ahem. Welcome to the party, pal.
A little Go Cubs Go heading into a beautiful holiday weekend never hurt anybody.
