I was working as usual.
Got a text from my cousin John:
That's not a good text from him.
"I'm not watching, what happened?" I reply kind of quickly.
"Hammel pulled a hammy."
HAMMEL'S GOT A HAMMY!
So of course that's a huge concern - but I heard them calling it "cramps" so I'm not freaking out.
And also, a really cool thing happened.
The bullpen came in and threw a no hitter.
Over 7 innings.
Starting with Travis Wood.
Seriously, don't you love that guy?
Twelve up, twelve down.
Then Grimm, Strop and Rondon do the same damn thing.
Plus Zobrist keeps the hit streak going, and I swear Anthony Rizzo is a couple minutes from a run of major destruction.
Cubs 2 Dodgers nothin'.
Win streak at 6.
The Chicago Cubs have 35 wins vs 14 losses.
Every day is a summer gift unlike we've ever been.. umm.. summer gifted before.
I tweeted this yesterday after game #48, so I'm gonna paint another W flag, but here's what the season looks like on little 3" x 3" canvases painted with acrylics and ink.
I'm so looking forward to posting this art later with many more W's.
PS: A guy on Twitter already told me about the mistake on the April 29th game, which should be vs the Braves and not the Brewers.
