That didn't end well.
Cubs up by 2 in the bottom of the 9th, Kerry Wood comes in and walks Ludwick.
Then Molina, who always seems to be in the middle of fun-wrecking, had a pretty brilliant at-bat, fouling off a bunch of pitches and working the walk the hard way.
Little turd Adam Kennedy lucks a liner off the end of his bat past D. Lee and ends up at 2nd, knocking in a run.
They intentionally walk the next guy.
Bases loaded and nobody out.
This is just the kind of thing Kerry Wood needs experience at.
You tell me: did he look scared or nervous?
I didn't think so.
One more stupid out, but he hung one to Ankiel and it was over.
I think by the end of the season Kerry Wood will be a monster closer, it's just a drag that we all had to get kicked in the nads today.
But that's the price of priesthood, my friend.
Mark DeRosa made the car ride back from Wisco sooo enjoyable - everyone was asleep in the car when he hit his homer, and I scared the crap out of them when I yelled.
Aramis broke out of his slump and 2-run homered when Card pitcher Ryan Franklin threw a snack pitch right in the soft chewy center of the plate.
And Ryan Theriot earlier hit a totally clutch single to knock in DeRosa, who'd hit a triple to get into scoring position.
All excellent, but still it's a loss.
Whatever - bring on tomorrow, when it'll be seven and three Todd Wellemeyer.
This will be interesting.
And Kerry Wood you just shake today off and get on with it, bro.
