Whoa. That wasn’t a world-beater lineup that Randy Wells just man-handled, but neither was the Cubs lineup that beat up on Tim Lincecum. This was the kind of August game we all hoped we’d see when we were looking into our crystal balls in April. Unfortunately we didn’t play close enough attention to those May, June, and July games that the ball was showing us.
And Marlon Byrd got a hit with a runner in scoring position! For realsies!
