Four-Game Sweep Possibility Over: Phillies at Cubs

18 July 2010 No Comment

Geovany Soto (and, of course, Carlos Marmol) blew my chance to see a four-game sweep of a series. Marmol walked five in route to a four-run ninth inning for the Phillies. However, the Cubs would have won if Soto held onto Tyler Colvin’s solid throw from left field. The throw beat Brian Schneider but Soto’s drop allowed Schneider to score.

The Cubs would have still needed to win tomorrow for the four-game sweep. But this would have only been the second time I witnessed a team win the first three games of a four-game series. The only time I have seen that was in 2001 when the San Francisco Giants won the first three games versus the San Diego Padres only to lose game four on a Thursday afternoon.

Beg, Borrow and Deal
Once again I needed to buy a ticket for this game. As usual I chose to buy my ticket from scalpers outside of Wrigley Field. I ended up spending $20 on a face value $60.48 in section 408.
