Cubs Snag Marlins. Travis Gets The Wood Out. RIP Tony Gwynn

Tony-Gwynn

If there’s a lesson that we can all learn about the passing of San Diego Padres legend Tony Gwynn, is that not only is baseball fun, but it is a magical game. Yesterday, Tony lost his battle with cancer at the age of 54 and somewhere, right now, there’s one amazing Hall Of Fame game happening.

As if to prove a point on the magical abilities of America’s favourite past time, Cubs ace Travis Wood notched an RBI double a day after taking a win to lead the Cubs past the Miami Marlins in extra innings 5-4.

“Any time you’re grinding it out and everybody’s running out of pitchers and everybody is running out of players, to pull it out is outstanding,” Wood said. “I’ve always hit growing up and out of high school. I didn’t have three or four years of college, but I stuck with it. Like I’ve said before, it’s part of our job as a starting pitcher in the National League, so I practice that and try to be as best as I can.”

Now the Cubs can look forward to today and take a back to back road series win. With the Cubs sitting seven games back in the wild card chase, things might not be looking as dismal as fans first thought going into the 2014 season.

The Cubs are playing good ball of late. Sometimes they register in the win column and sometimes it’s a loss, but keeping it close and fighting for that win in every game is key.

Believe it!
