What a dull game.
Anibal Sanchez pitched like some kinda genius, which he hadn't really done this year (he's a plus 5 ERA guy in 2015), and the Cub bats...
The Cubs got to 2nd twice and third once when Dexter Fowler advanced on a wild pitch.
And Jon Lester was lackluster.
Cubs zeero, Tigers 6.
In other news, I'm having a delicious blueberry/blackberry/every kinda berry smoothie from this glossy hippie place downstairs called Freshii and it's a whole new day with a billion possibilities.
Like the Cubs getting back at Detroit tonight at 6 with Jake Arrieta on the mound!
The Cubs signed 35 year old reliever Rafael Soriano (who used to pitch for Joe Maddon) to a minor league contract, and in the draft they got more position guys and a lefty pitcher from Alton, IL named Bryan Hudson who is 6'8" and 220 pounds.
He's expected to "fill out" and improve on his 92MPH fastball.
Lastly if you recognize the painting, I re-did it in acrylics to donate to an auction for a Chicago Literary Hall of Fame's fundraiser.
Originally, it was done for Memorial Day weekend in 2003 when I was listening to the radio.
Kerry Wood left a game against the Pirates in the 7th inning down 0-1.
Then in the 8th inning... in came Phil Norton who gave up 2, Juan Cruz who gave up 4, and finally Antonio Alfonseca who gave up 3.
In the course of 3 outs, the Cubs gave up 9 runs and absolutely ruined a perfectly good barbecue.
Thanks for the memories, Phil, Juan and Antonio!
