Last night's Cubs game was a thriller, as the Cubs beat the Giants 1-0 on an eighth inning homer by Baez. Both pitchers threw a tremendous game and -- as the folks on the post-game radio program observed -- it was the sort of game where whoever lost it was going to feel really bad about it.
I skipped tonight's game, because Katie and Julie had been invited to a friend's birthday party. The girls had a wonderful time and the conversation was good. And I got back to the car just as the game started, so I was able to annoy the girls by listening to it instead of the Kidz Bop CD that they had handed me to listen to for the trip to the party. And the Cubs won tonight as well, so they have held serve and get to go to San Francisco leading two games to none. This is good, because Madison Bumgarner is pitching for the Giants in game three.
