Ninth-Inning Woes

Sean Marshall pitched well (1 run and 3 hits over 6 innings), but the Cubs stranded too many runners, and Kerry Wood couldn't hold the Reds in the bottom of the ninth inning. Result? Cubs lose a heartbreaker, 4-3.

It was a beautiful day in Cincinnati, a great view from the upper deck, a sense of camaraderie in a stadium mostly filled with Cubs' fans, and a pleasant afternoon at the ballpark over all. It was also a good family day, as Gail and I enjoyed going with my folks to the game before they left to return home to Tenn.

At least the Brewers lost too, so the Cubs lost no ground and maintain their four-game lead in the standings.
