The Cubs finally dropped one to the Astros, with Ryan Dempster giving up all of the damage in the first inning.
The Cubs came back, and even took the lead briefly in the bottom of the 8th on a two-run homer by Carlos Pena. But a review turned that homer into a double, and those two runs were ultimately left on the base paths. And then Mike Quade was ejected for the seventh time this year after arguing that at least one of the runs should have been allowed to score on the play. And then there was a rain delay. And then an hour later the Cubs lost. It was all a big bundle of wonderful.
