Cubs Take 2-1 Lead In Bizarre Game, A Win Is A Win

Carl will have another full blog tomorrow, he’s at the game today and hopefully getting really fucking drunk in Wrigleyville.


What a weird weird game. Schwarber almost blows the whole thing with an error in the 6th only to have Joe make it worse by pulling a locked in Quintana for Strop who gave up the lead run. Then in a very similar situation Dusty pulls Scherzer after DOMINATING the Cubs for 6 innings and the Cubs tie it up. It was a day full of errors, base running mistakes and no hits in what seemed like was leading to a frustrating loss. Then of course, the game is decided by a bloop hit from the Captain Anthony Rizzo and just like that the Cubs have a 2-1 lead with Arrieta on the bump tomorrow. It wasn’t pretty and it was a lot lucky, but that’s what veteran teams do, they find a way. I won’t apologize for winning on a duck snort, that’s playoff baseball, great to have the breaks go our way and win one that felt doomed. You can’t make mistakes when playing this team, they proved that tonight.

Now, it’s Trubisky time. Let’s have a fucking day.
