The Chicago Cubs Feeling Spaced Out

There’s something terribly wrong if a team can’t beat the Houston Astros. There I said it. Whew!!!! That was cathartic. The Chicago Cubs lost to the Houston Astros 4-3 yesterday.

The Cubs had a chances to win the game in the eighth inning when Alfonso Soriano was called out at second base.

“I know it’s not an easy job they have, but when I get mad at something they call, it’s because I’m 100 percent I have the right call,” Soriano said. “I knew I was safe. It’s part of the game. I have a lot of respect for the umpires. He called me out and I got mad because I knew I was safe.

So it was just bad luck in the end that caused the Cubs to lose. That happens in baseball, everybody knows that.

“Soriano was safe at second base, so there’s a run,” Dale Sveum fumed. “And (Cisnero) is throwing the ball all over the place, and Barney takes a 3-1 pitch and it’s eight inches inside. So it’s a popup and an out. It’s a shame.”

Nate Schierholtz continued with the home runs, banging in his tenth one this season and just one shy of tying Tony Rizzo for the team lead. Awesome Nate!

However, the pitching on the Cubs was business as usual. Travis Wood notched his 14th quality start.

The season continues to be a frustrating one for the Cubs with pitchers hitting home runs and close games that should have been won.

The Cubs try to get the series win today when Jeff “The Shark” Samardzija gets the ball at 2:20 eastern time.
