That is not a typo.
For the first time since 1993, the Chicago Cubs have finished a game in a tie. With the rains besetting Pittsburgh in the 6th inning of a 1-1 affair, with them not expected to let up for many hours, and with the outcome of this game not determinative of anything outside of sportsmanship, MLB decided to just call the game.
Cubs tie! Cubs tie! There will be no penalty kicks!
Ivan Nova mostly held the Cubs down, though Rob Zastryzny looked good starting the Cubs’ would-be bullpen affair. The stats from this one do count, by the way, so enjoy the box score …
