The Cubs came back from an early deficit, only to lose the game in extras. That is literally my least favorite kind of loss. Chris Rusin gave up twice as many hits as innings he pitched, but the bullpen was brilliant from there on out. Starlin Castro had a huge game, while David DeJesus had a forgettable one – he was 0-6 at the plate, and his 11th inning error set the stage for the Reds to take their final lead.
At least there was once nice thing to celebrate.
