Opening Day

It was Opening Day for the Cubs at Wrigley Field and I headed down there with a friend of mine. In what was a complete surprise (well, not if you had looked at the forecast for today, but if you had been to previous Opening Days at Wrigley), the weather was gorgeous.

The Cubs kicked the Pirates around 10-0. Both starting pitchers departed after two innings without giving up an earned run (there's a proposition bet for you); Lester with a hamstring injury, while Taillon gave up six unearned runs on three two-out errors and took a ball off his head.

Lester had a better day: his team won.

But it was a nice day at the ballpark, if not very exciting after the fourth inning. :)
