Another Rain Delay: Indians at Cubs

20 June 2009 No Comment

Once again there was rain at Wrigley Field. And with the Ultimate Sports Wife and I needing to attend a Northwestern Graduation Party later on Friday afternoon, we had no time for a rain delay. The ideal day would have been for the game to start on time, attend the game and drive to Evanston for the party.

However, that plan was not meant to be as the game was delayed for 86 minutes – pushing the start time back to 2:45 pm. Of course, the Ultimate Sports Wife and I managed to get in 5 innings (the minimum amount of time needed for the game to officially count) and then took off for Evanston – needless to say, we were late to the party.

The Game
When we left for Evanston the Cubs were trailing 7-1 and we figured this was just as good as any reason to take off early. There was no way the Cubs would come from behind two days in a row – right? Wrong. For the second time in as many days, the Cubs scored 4 runs in the bottom of the 8th and 1 run in the bottom of the 9th to tie the Cleveland Indians at 7 runs apiece and push the game into extra innings. Kerry Wood, in his first game back to Chicago as a visiting pitcher, blew the save in the 9th inning. The Cubs scored a run in the 10th inning to seal the come-from-behind win for the second consecutive day.
