It didn’t feel like the Cubs were going to lose this one. From the moment Travis Wood hit a two-run BOMB out on to Waveland, it just seemed like he was going to keep cruising, and the Cubs were going to win. Unfortunately they didn’t.
Wood still got the quality start, but the Mets got him for a run in the sixth and two in the seventh. He departed only to watch Kyuji Fujikawa – whose stuff has looked very good since his return from the DL – give up a game-winning homer in the 8th. Series loss.
As for me, I can’t help but feel a little SI cover jinx-y …
