And that is what the Cubs did yesterday.
During the sixth inning against the Giants, they went from leading by three runs to trailing by one. And they did so in an MLB record tying way....Edwin Jackson and Michael Bowden combined for five wild pitches in one inning. Yeah! We're in the record book!
Here's how the inning went...
Jackson walks Hunter Pence
....Wild Pitch #2, scoring Belt and moving Blanco to third.
Jackson is done for the day, and in comes Michael Bowden.
Then, while Angel Pagan is batting, Bowden unleases
Wild Pitch #5! Yeah! Record tied! Pagan walked, but Marco Scutaro grounded into a double play before the Cubs could claim the record by themselves. Boo!
Tomorrow's another day...let's go get 'em boys and not settle for a tied record....let's snag that puppy all for ourselves!
