I have always wanted to attend a Chicago Cubs game. Today was the day. The Chicago Cubs took on the Pittsburgh Pirates today. Which, of course, meant that they lost.
An Aramis Ramirez error in the 8th led to two unearned runs and Cashner’s third straight loss. Lee gave a ball a ride in the 9th and everyone thought it was a homer, except me, as I usually can tell where the ball is going right off the bat and knew it was going to hang up in Center Field with how hard the wind was blowing in. So the Cubs lost 2-0.
Colvin had a pinch-hit strikeout, and Castro struck out twice but also doubled. Cashner struggled again, and Schlitter went two strong innings.
