Happy Mother's Day, all you Mothers.
Just a great game yesterday except I would enjoy a teensy bit of sun the next time I go to Wrigley.
After starting the day with 4 straight balls, Casey ColeMAN was a stud, striking out 6 including Joey Votto twice.
But the bats were pretty quiet vs Bronson Arroyo except for the unexpected liner that went out to right from Blake DeWitt - the wind was blowing directly the opposite direction he hit it.
The end was the good part, and with that little rally off hadn't-blown-a-save-yet Francisco Cordero, maybe the Cub bats woke up a little.
Jeff Baker with the clutch shoulda-been-the-winner-hit that bounced out for a ground rule double, leaving DeWitt one base short of the W.
Kosuke Fukudome with the smack up the middle to win it.
He's still hitting a week into May.
Weird but good.
Tyler Colvin might as well just start off each at bat with an 0-2 count.
I'm sick for that guy.
But what a fabulous game, and maybe today we get to put another flower in that bouquet above!
I gotta go make breakfast in bed.
