Game 1. Cubs up by four. Down by one. Down by two. Tied up. Down by two. Tied up with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Cubs lose in 11.
Not the best outcome, but what a game.
Game 2. 12 Cubs are coming home tonight and the center field cameraman (almost 500 feet from home plate) almost gets a souvenir.
Game 3. I’ve seen a few see-saws, but this was seeingest-sawingest see-saw I ever saw. The whole game was great, but the emotional rollercoaster of the bottom of the eleventh was simply unbelievable.
High - Catillo strikes out, thank Og we kept him off base.
Low - Castillo reaches after strike three gets past Bako.
High - Rodriguez hits what should be a game ending double play ball.
Low - Remmy bobbles it slightly and takes the safe out at first.
High - Lee hits what should be a game ending grounder to third.
Low - Ramirez doesn’t field the ball cleanly, it’s gonna be tough to throw Lee out at first.
High - Ramirez doesn’t try to throw to first, and instead catches Castillo in a rundown. Cubs win.
Er… I mean…
CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN!
