Cubs Score On Consecutive Mets Throwing Errors, Still Lose

We pick up the action in the fifth inning with "...David Wright, who's won two gold gloves—not a good throw, though!..." and it only got better.

Alfonso Soriano lined a ground ball to third, stopped nicely by a diving David Wright and thus began the opening sequence of a Naked Gun film. Wright overthrew Daniel Murphy at first, who then threw wide of John Buck at home and then shortstop Omar Quintanilla tracked down that ball near the Chicago dugout and missed home himself as Soriano trotted into third on a ball that never once left the infield.


It gave the Cubs a 3-0 lead that they would Cubsily lose in walk-off fashion in the ninth, capped off by a Kirk Nieuwenhuis three-run homer.
