Wow. Way to keep things exciting, Cubs. Everyone loves a walk-off.
(Obligatory Kyuji Fujikawa is the new Carlos Marmol joke, or some such thing.)
The Cubs came back to win in the bottom of the 9th today courtesy of a Dioner Navarro pinch hit homer and a Starlin Castro walk-off double. That, despite Fujikawa, in the top half of the frame, blowing a beautiful start by Carlos Villanueva.
David DeJesus and Starlin Castro went deep for the Cubs today, which you’ll gladly take, even if no one was on base. But the Cubs also squandered a couple leadoff doubles, which, like, stop doing that.
But today was ultimately a good day.
