Cubs Fact:

The Cubs have been involved in two of the highest scoring games in baseball history, beating Philadelphia, 26-23 on August 25, 1922, and losing to Philadelphia, 23-22 on May 17, 1979.

Came hone from school and saw the last few innings of the 23-22 game...pretty sure Kingman and Schmidt each had 3 HRs

Actually, Kingman had 3, but Schmidt "only" had 2 HRs.

Speaking of high scoring games, I have a remember a game from sometime in the 1985-87 range that had a pair of high scores, maybe ended up 19-17 or something ridiculous... can't remember the opponent. Cubs were way back, down by 8, 9 runs or so, came back to tie it, and, I think, ended up losing. I don't really want to flip through each game at B-R, but I might have to to figure this out.

Hmm... it *might* have been this one:

Holy CRAP. Andre Dawson was 4-for-6 with 8 RBIs on 3 HRs. For the Expos. Wow.

Wow, that 23-22 game was absolutely brutal for all pitchers involved. Both team's starters failed to get out of the first inning and both teams combined to give up eleven home runs. The Cubs walked TWELVE in the game, with future 1984 Cy Young *AND* MVP winner Willie Hernandez (I know, right?) walked SEVEN in his craptacular 2 2/3 innings.

I love how it says that the wind was blowing 18 mph in an unknown direction. Umm. . gee. . I'll give everyone a hint. It was probably blowing out.
