Squeeze Me Once
…..,but squeeze me twice…..in a row? Joe Maddon called a couple of squeezes, and produced some runs. Soler went deep, and out to compliment a 5 run Cubs 2nd inning in answer to a 1 run 1st by the Cardinals in game 2 of the division playoff.
Maddon brilliantly called it, and the Cubs were perfect on execution.
Kyle Hendricks did well through 4+ until the Cardinals sent out back to back long balls in the 5th. Luckily for Cubs fans the long shots were good for only 1 per pop.
The final in Saturday’s game was 6-3 Cubs to even the series at 1 & 1.
The play shifts from Busch Stadium to Wrigley Field on Monday.
Keep in mind the series is back to start with both teams even in this best of five.
Everything’s outlined for you on the Cubs Home Page.
