What a weird and yet cool game.
It's nearly the end of June, yet there's this freaky fog hanging around Chicago.
If you look in last night's box score, in the bottom of the 6th you'll see that Luis Valbuena hit a triple.
But what really happened was he hit a sky high fly ball into the fog, and Nationals center fielder Jason Werth (edit, that's CF Denard Span. DOH!) never saw it.
He stood in place and then kinda... got out of the way moving to his left, but the ball actually dropped out of the fog on his right.
The Junior Lake play that I'm making light of was actually really really scary.
He crashed into one of those doors in the ivy.
If you were in his control room, you'd have heard the Captain screaming into the radio: "ABORT ABORT! WALL DEAD AHEAD!"
I thought busted knee or a concussion or something.
But after laying on the ground for a long time, and doctors and trainers visiting he popped up and smiled.
Hope he's really okay - I bet he's sore today.
The Cubs won 5-3, and if you're not watching the games you are totally missing out on Anthony Rizzo at the top of his game.
I mean, he's been unbelievable.
Last night he went 3 for 4 with a double, and his .934 OPS leads all NL 1st basemen.
Anyway, the fog is still here this morning...
and today's game starts late afternoon.
If it's still there, it'll look like a cloud on the field.
