Even When The Cubs Win, They Lose

The Chicago Cubs salvaged a win in their opening series against the Pirates with a rain-soaked 3-2 victory at PNC Park today, but it wasn't without some embarrassment. A botched bunt by Gaby Sanchez left pitcher Pedro Strop and catcher John Baker in what we might call a compromising situation.


Baker turned out to be OK, and the Cubs won. Like most north-side fans, though, they go home with a few bruises.
