Semi-marathon, that last game against the Giants.
Jason Heyward hit the game-tying single to knock in Addison Russell in the bottom of the 9th.
There were still no outs and you just thought well, here comes the game winner.
But that didn't happen for about an extra half game.
Finally in the bottom of the 13th, Rizzo led off with a single, Zobrist gets him to 2nd, they walk Addison Russell for the double play and.... HEYWARD HITS A SINGLE THAT KNOCKS IN RIZZO.
Lots of stuff happened including John Lackey looking pretty good, going 5 innings and only giving up 1 earned (plus one not).
Cubs take 3 of 4 from San Francisco at Wrigley, and now it's time to bring on Milwaukee and an excellent time for me to load up the car and head back to Chicago.
See, I'm up in Wisconsin.
And for instance, I was at a supper club the other night and a woman came in and, loud enough for the whole place to hear, she said: "HOW CAN SOMEONE BE WEARING A CUBS HAT IN HERE!"
Everybody looked at me.
Of course I was wearing my hat because I'd been on a boat all day and neglected to shower before going out.
So I removed my hat to reveal hideous hat-head.
"Does this look better to you?"
Sometimes, I'm just absolutely hilarious.
At least to me.
