Enhanced Box Score: Astros 4, Cubs 5 – October 3, 2012

Enhanced Box Scores

It’s ok to admit it – the walk-off was fun.

It was utterly meaningless in the standings, and it won’t change what was a miserable season. But for a few minutes, you remembered why you watch the games. I did, too.

Travis Wood pitched well, and the Cubs’ bats actually put together some offense, including Bryan LaHair’s first homer since August. The Cubs let their lead slip away temporarily, but then won it on a LaHair walk-off single. And, hey, I get to say LaDiculous again! I thought maybe that was over. Possibly forever. Good for you, Bryan.


So ends the 2012 season, and the Cubs could say it to only one team …
