Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 4, Phillies 3 – June 9, 2011

Enhanced Box Scores

When was the last time the Cubs won a game like that? Down three runs early. Rain delay knocks out the starting pitchers. Game goes into extra innings. Other team screws up to give the game to the Cubs. I can think of a million times the Cubs have lost games like that, but not the last time they won a game like that.


And it feels good. So does Tyler Colvin breaking out of an 0 for 33 slump with a couple big hits. So does a season-high, two-game winning streak!

Do I risk ruining that good feeling by pointing out that the Cubs were their same old selves with runners in scoring position (2 for 13) and left 11 men on? Oops.

Back to feeling good…
