Yes, I’d prefer to have the W, but the Cubs certainly gave us reason to hang around and keep watching the game last night. Despite having to dig out of an early hole, a few home runs and some really nice defense provided enough hope to drown out the angry mob, for a while anyway.
Rather than delve into issues with the back end of the rotation or the bullpen, not to mention the thin bench, I’m just going to show you a few videos. Perhaps this will get you feeling a little better as we head into an early start on this fine Saturday.
MiggyMont had a solo blast of his own and Starling Castro made a sterling play in the 4th, diving to snag a grounder ticketed for left. Alas, neither video is embeddable, nor were they enough to overcome the Nats.
Here’s to a few more highlights and a better result this afternoon.
