6/21 Non Brewers IGT or the Holy crap, why is the Cubs game on so early thread?

8 runs in the bottom of the 4th for the Cubs, and still only 1 out. Edmonds, Fontenot, and Ramirez have all homered, and everyone else is scoring on singles to right field. When Mike Fontenot -- a smaller, scrappier, crappier Eckstein -- hits a home run, you know your team is divinely blessed. Len Kasper is getting plenty of chances to sound like Kermit the Frog today.

 

Edit: Edmonds homers again. 9 runs in the 4th.

Have the cubs lost a game at home before?

They have lost eight games at Gum Field this year, including four times to the Brewers.

 

I know you probably weren't literally seeking an answer, but at least there's kind of a silver lining. Of course, it seems like they've been 'stuck on' 8 home losses for like a month.

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

May 17th against the Pirates to be exact. http://forum.brewerfan.net/images/smilies/smile.gif

With the bases loaded, Carlos Marmol nearly hits Alexi Ramirez in the back with a pitch, but Ramirez spins out of the way. The pitch gets to the backstop, so a run scores, but Ramirez grounds out on the next pitch. Take one for the team and keep the inning going...ugh.

Cubs lead 11-7 with 2 out in the 9th, and the White Sox have guys on 1st and 3rd after an RBI single. Lou Piniella pulls a Ned and brings in Kerry Wood to "close" the game with a 4 run lead and a win virtually guaranteed. Nothing like unneccesarily burning through your bullpen in a meaningless interleague series when you have a win virtually in the bank. A home run doesn't even tie the game yet.

 

Edit: Wood gets the strikeout, and the save even though he had a 4-run lead and threw like 5 pitches. Gotta love the save stat.

Cubs have lost 8 home games... EIGHT?!. I wish we could play them some more

Why you in a hurry to add to the Cubs win totals at Wrigley? This isn't April, the Cubs got their groove, swerve, attitude, whatever you want to call it on, at Wrigley Field. Chances are the next time to visit Wrigley, it won't be so..........generious to the Brewers.
