How Do I Explain Last Night
How does anybody explain last night?
The game was a jaw dropper.
The ‘Wizard of Cubs,’ Manager Joe Maddon designed a few spells late in the game, and each participant played it out perfectly.
We look at the Cubs behind to the Mariners 6-0 very early on 3 HRs given up by Cubs Starter Brian Matusz.
We get to the bottom of the 9th down by 3. This would have to become a strong come back. It was exactly that. The Cubs put 3 across in that 9th inning to tie, pushing it to extras.
Mariners’ Reliever Steve Cishek sent up a wild pitch to the backstop to allow the Cubs the tie run taking it to extras.
There were lots of Cubs star performers in this game including Travis Wood’s excellent catch at the ivy in LF. Oh yeah, Maddon had him pitching, playing LF, and pitching again.
The 12th inning had Maddon pull some surprises out to try and capture a win. Wait til you read about this, and if you don’t know by now you will be amazed at who got the hit driving in the final, and winning run of the game.
All the videos, box, and commentary is available on your official
Cubs Buzz on the web.
Kyle Hendricks has opened up matters tonight as the Cubs entertain more Marine life at Wrigley Field as the Mariners sail out, and the Marlins swim in to the Cubs home territory.
