Enhanced Box Score: Reds 8, Cubs 7 – August 7, 2011

Enhanced Box Scores

Good things never last.

Or, they last just long enough to drive you crazy.


The Cubs’ improbable seven-game winning streak ended today, with Randy Wells playing the stopper. The Cubs fell behind early, and came back late only to lose it in the 8th. Shame on me: I had allowed myself to kinda-sorta-maybe start thinking “what if.”

Blake DeWitt and Starlin Castro has good games and each homered. Marlon Byrd had a good one at the plate, but he muffed one in center field in the 8th to help the Reds retake the lead.
