Jeff Bennett starts for the Braves, after the scheduled starter, Jair Jurrjens, slipped on a dugout step following last night's game and messed up his ankle.
I'll bet it was just like that scene in "Pride of the Yankees," where Lou Gehrig (Gary Cooper) slips on a pile of bats near the on-deck circle, and a gorgeous girl (Teresa Wright) laughs at him and calls him "Tanglefoot."
Yes, I'm certain it happened just like that.
Ryan Dempster puts his 7-0 home record on the line this evening; overall, the Cubs are 10-3 in Dempster's starts...The team's 27-8 home start is the Cubs' best-ever at Wrigley Field.
Let's win one for Teresa Wright!
