At the ballgame

Jesse and I trekked over to Cincinnati last night to see the Cubs play the Reds. Both teams have been in a bit of a swoon lately, and the Cubbies kept it up. Ryan Dempster, previously undefeated, pitched well, but fielding foibles led to five unearned runs early, and the Cubs couldn't come all the way back. The ninth inning was especially frustrating, as the visitors loaded the bases twice and couldn't score. Final: Reds 5, Cubs 3.

Oh well, we saw Geovany Soto and Adam Dunn hit tape-measure homers, Ken Griffey make a leaping catch of a possible Soriano home run, Felix Pie do the same with Griffey's attempt at #598, some good pitching, and a few nice plays in the field. Plus, it was a beautiful night, the food was great, and nothing's better than being with my son at the ballpark.
