Game time was almost doubled today by lots of rain in Chicago but the Cubs won their second game in a row against the Cardinals with a home run. This time it was Daryle Ward’s grand slam that did it. The cardinals wish their three solo home runs were as cool but not only were theirs incredibly LESS cool but also much less victorious.
Also, Carmen Pignatiello, the Cubs rookie lefty in the ‘pen came on to finish off Chris Duncan in the 8th with one pitch after the second rain delay. He inherited a 1-2 count and threw a breaking ball that had Duncan looking like he hadn’t even walked out of the dugout yet.
