Cleveland Indians at Chicago Cubs

20 June 2009 No Comment

For the second day in a row, Kerry Wood blew a one-run lead and this time received the loss as the Cubs defeated the Indians 6-5 in 13 innings – the 9th longest game I have ever attended in terms of number of outs recorded (76).

Pre Game Dining
Before the game the Ultimate Sports Wife and I ate at Salt & Pepper Diner located at 3537 N. Clark St. just south of Wrigley Field on Clark St. Salt & Pepper Diner recently raised the prices on all of their drinks by $1 across the board. Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s that once cost $3 now cost $4, pitchers of beer now cost $8 (used to be $7) and bottles of PBR are now $3 (compared to $2).

Game Milestones
1) The Cubs have won three straight games in walk-off fashion. The last time they achieved that feat was June 5-7, 1946.
2) The last team to lose three straight extra-inning games was the Texas Rangers from September 16-18, 2002. The Indians achieved the feat in their last three games (starting with losing to the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday in 11 innings).
3) The last time the Cubs came-from-behind to win a game in which they fell behind in the 13th inning or later was on May 8, 1998.
