On Saturday, just as some fans were second guessing a Wrigley Field curse on the Cubs, all scoring frames came up with a limit of 1 per team. It was much to do about pitching, and both sides held it close with a 3-3 tie in the 6th.
Starlin Castro was up in the 6th, and clouted one out with nobody on. Who would have thought pitching would hold everybody back for the rest of the game, and Castro’s round-tripper would be the game winner? 4-3 Cubs.Stats & the Story.
Sunday. Different story. The Cubs took the decisive game of the series in a decisive manor, 7-1. No doubt about sandbergers on Sunday. Perhaps a bit of a return for the 12-1 Phillies victory over the Cubs in Philadelphia, earlier last month. Details on theCubs Home Page.
The Marlins come in for 3, and next weekend, when the Brewers arrive, the Cubs could escape a last place finish in the NL Central Division.
