I don’t think most people would have thought the Cubs would win 2 out of 3 against the Braves, but that’s what happened. I don’t think most people would have thought it would be the Cubs that ended Dan Uggla’s streak, but that’s what happened.
Ignoring the latest Zambrano drama, let’s look at the rest of the fun things that happened.
-Castro and Barney combing to rack up the hits and make some stellar defensive plays.
-Wells having another good outing, something we’re going to really need now.
-Bobby Cox getting his number retired and visiting Len and Bob in the booth. The man is a class act and a legend.
-Pena with a 2-run bomb right when we needed it.
-Stringing together five hits and capitalizing on a wild pitch for a four-run comeback inning.
-Pat and Keith poking fun at Steve Stone for giving up five home runs in a game.
-The Cubs winning four series in a row.
–This catch by Barney, which pretty much ended Dan Uggla’s streak.
