This was simply the best game of the season. Unfortunately, it was the last good game of the season. The Cubs dug a hole in the top of the first inning by giving up four runs only to come back with a five spot in the bottom of the inning. The Cubs went on to score 17 runs with Anthony Rizzo hitting a grand slam. This is the game that I will think about all winter. Continue reading
Rain and a loss. Some days you just do not have it and this was one of those days. The Braves were in town and so were our Brave fan friends which made this loss a little harder. Despite the loss we had a great time with friends. The Cubs lost the game 8 to 3.
I got to see the best player in baseball play at Wrigley Field, Unfortunately, Mike Trout was playing for the Angels. Lucky for us Mike Trout played as a mortal and the Cubs won 8 to 1. Continue reading
After two cool evenings of baseball we finally reached Summer weather (on the most part). The Cubs took on the Phillies and spotted the Phillies three early runs before taking control of the game. Cole Hamels and Tyler Chatwood each pitched four innings before Steve Cisheck closed it out for a Cubs win. Continue reading
The unseasonably cool and damp weather might have been a precursor for the evening. The Cubs took an early lead against the Marlins only to have the bullpen give up the lead for my first Cubs loss of the season. Despite the weather and the loss we had a great time sitting in the bleachers.
The day we waited for all winter – our first day at Wrigley Field in 2019. After the annual visit to the World Series Trophy we headed inside and were pleasantly surprised by most of the improvements in the upper deck.
The Cubs did not disappoint, despite a late Dodger rally, with a 7 to 6 victory. Continue reading
Walk Off Grand Slam Win!!!!
This was a fantastic end to a game the Cubs almost let get away. Jason Hayward crushed a 2-2 pitch to hit a walk off grand slam into the bleachers. Continue reading
You could not ask for a more beautiful day for baseball in early May. This game helped the memories of the April cold melt. Plus – it was a beautiful W for the Cubs over the Marlins. Continue reading
Atlanta Braves at Chicago Cubs in Chicago, Illinois
There is only one place this Perfect Storm Road Trip could end and that was at Wrigley Field. There also happened to be a not so perfect storm occurring in Chicago. This had to be the coldest game I have ever attended at Wrigley Field and most people were surprised they played the game. I usually do not attend April baseball in Chicago because you can always count on miserable weather and today was no exception.
