Tonight’s recap will be short and sweet; the complete opposite of the game.

In what seemed like the longest game of the season, the Cubs managed to squeak out a W. Volstad managed to pitch 5 innings of one-run ball, our relievers only surrendered two hits, and Marmol didn’t blow it!

Dave Sappelt was 2 for 5 with 3 RBIs, bringing his average up to .200. Vitters is batting .093, Rizzo was 0 for 4, and Soriano and Castillo both managed to draw two walks!

Darwin Barney continued his NL-record errorless streak, managing some pretty impressive defensive plays to help hold the Astros to one run.



By the end of the game, Minute Maid Park was nearly empty. This late in the season, nobody wants to watch two of the worst teams duke it out in a battle of the losers. Personally, I would like to see some NFL players out there on the baseball diamond. Maybe have Clay Matthews as catcher?

If there was one football player you would like to see as a position in player in baseball, who would it be, and why?
