Monday Night Baseball: Astros at Cubs

28 July 2009 No Comment

With my season tickets already in hand, I walked across the street from my house to Wrigley Field about 5 minutes before the scheduled first pitch.

The Game
The Cubs and Astros played a 1-1 game into the 13th inning before Alfonso Soriano hit a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the 13th with nobody out. In the bottom of the 9th, the Cubs failed to execute a suicide squeeze as Mike Fontenot missed his bunt attempt and Milton Bradley was tagged out in an attempted steal of home. In the bottom of the 8th, Latroy Hawkins was ejected from the mound as he argued home plate umpire Mike Everitt’s ball call.

This was the third 13 inning game I have seen this season. The other two games came on June 20 when the Cubs defeated the Cleveland Indians 6-5 and on June 25 when the Chicago White Sox defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-5.
