The weather was more like March than May, but the Cubs weathered it pretty well to earn a series win despite losing a rain shortened second game and some sloppy defense in the first couple of innings of the last game.
But through wind and rain and cold afternoon, we had some fun.
-A five-run 2nd. A four-run 2nd. A four-run 4th. A four-run 7th. Love those big innings.
-Campana’s first start in center and the consecutive sliding catches in his very first inning.
-Len and Bob talking about the fish hats.
-Lou Montanez’s RBI double in his first at-bat as a Cub.
-Keith Moreland looking like a nun as he was bundled up against the cold.
-Russell giving up one run in 3 2/3 on two days rest after giving up three runs in a four inning start on one day rest after giving up nothing in 3 innings.
-Big Z’s hit streak: 3 for 3 in his start, 4 for 4 in the series. See also: Big Z’s pinch hit RBI.
-Darwin Barney’s fantastic, sno-cone catch.
