Game 66 Thread/Padres @ Cubs (#1 of 3)
(4-4, 3.96) v. David Wells
After taking the Mariners two out of three, the Cubs have climbed to within five games of .500. It’s hardly the sort of accomplishment Cub fans dreamed of this past off-season, but still, it’s the first time the team has been this close to breakeven since May 28th.
This will be Lilly's first start since umpire Jim Wolf read his mind, saw dark intentions and tossed him, just two outs into the bottom of the first inning in Atlanta.
The Padres, who ended a season-high, four-game losing streak on Wednesday, lead the season series 3-2. The teams split a pair at Wrigley back in mid-April.
On a personal note, I will attending today’s game in lower deck seats along the third-base line. I’ll be the middle-aged white guy seated with three other middle-aged white guys.
See if you can spot me.
