Due to a reversed home run call, the Cubs were denied the opportunity for a sweep, but they at least made it close every game. As well they should with the worst team in baseball, as they also handed them their 100th loss for the season for the first time in that franchise’s history.
There was other such nose-thumbing fun as well.
-Martin Sheen with the stretch.
-Pat and Keith with the stretch. It seemed like Keith was doing whatever he could not to be heard.
-Campana stealing 3rd. Ping ping ping! Ricochet Rabbit!
-Bob remarking on the excellent defense played by the fans in the first base side upper deck.
-Soto with a home run.
-LaHair with a game winning home run.
-Ramirez accidentally hitting the Astros first base coach with a bad throw.
-DeWitt with a home run swing that resulted in a bunt base hit.
-Mike Quade with his 7th ejection of the season.
-Byrd with a walk-off single.
-Foul ball giveaway day (there were a lot of them this series).
