Prime and I spent the weekend in Milwaukee, for a pair of Brewers games against the Cubs. Saturday night was a very eventful night, as you can see. So, let’s get started.
Bottom of the first saw the Brewers score three runs. On top of that, the inning ending out at first base was challenged and it turned out that Lorenzo Cain was actually safe, so the inning wasn’t done quite yet.
The Cubs answered in the top of the second with a home run. My response to that?
Yeah, the Cubs fans were extremely excited over that. I honestly don’t know whether to laugh or roll my eyes at it. The Brewers had already taken the first game on Friday so a win on Saturday meant the Crew would have the series win. And with the way the Cubs were playing…
There were errors. The Cubs made two errors and they just played poorly. It was absolutely embarrassing. If I had been a Cubs fan, I probably would have slipped a paper bag over my head. It wasn’t pretty.
In the bottom of the fifth, things got rather strange: we had water infiltrating the stadium! It seems we were being hit by a fairly large thunderstorm and some of the rain was able to get through the seals on the retractable roof! We had a line of precipitation on the first base side and a small patch in the outfield near the lights. It lasted for at least a couple of innings.
The Cubs almost got another run in the top of the seventh, but they were quickly denied by Lorenzo “Not Today” Cain. To hear the Cubs fans start cheering then the cheers dying off and being picked up by Brewers fans was glorious. I couldn’t help myself, I said “Not Today!” more than once when the scoreboard replayed that highlight.
The Brewers added to their lead. Multiple times. The score wasn’t as impressive as it had been on Friday but it was still a really nice score. So needless to say, the series win was guaranteed. I wasn’t about to complain about that.
