There was a moment, right after Welington Castillo hit his 2nd inning homer, that it appeared he couldn't believe he hit it that far.
I mean, it took about a second to know it was loooooong gone, and Castillo kinda stumbled with his first step towards first. Not a prima donna move at all. It lacked experience. Almost like a double take rather than admiration.
Enormous home run into the upper deck, and 2 runs score because Junior Lake led off with a double.
If you were a fortune teller you coulda told everybody to go on home because that was all the Cubs needed since the Reds could only come up with one meaningless run late in the game when the Cubs were up 9 to nothin'.
Edwin Jackson was fabulous on the mound and hit one out himself.
This is the Reds, man.
They're in the playoffs.
This was so much fun to watch.
Reds starting pitcher Tony Cingrani had to leave early with a back thing, which made for lots of extra guys playing.
Really, the final score was 24 Reds 1, 12 Cubs 9.
And tonight is... well the other day I was watching and Len said something like, "And Wednesday we'll see Samardzija leak."
Umm..that's not what we'll see though.
It's Samardzija vs. Mike Leake.
