Cubs Win!!

 We rode our bicycles 150 miles to see this game.  They better win!  

And they did, blowing out the Pirates 14-5.  Seven runs in the second inning meant it would be an easy night.  Keegan Thompson pitched six strong innings.

The ninth inning was interesting as the Pirates had a position player take the mound.  Second baseman Diego Castillo was very wild and the Cubs loaded the bases without a hit.  Alfonso Rivas then blasted a grand slam.  Cubs reliever Daniel Norris was awful in the bottom of the ninth, giving up four runs before finally ending the game.

We had nice seats in a fairly empty ballpark.  We head back for the Thursday afternoon wrap up.  Hopefully the result will be the same.
