Despite blowing the lead in the ninth inning with two outs. Oh... here we go again.
No not this time
This time the Cubs WIN!
In the eleventh pinch hitter Dioner Navarro hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly to right for win.
The Cubs beat the Pirates 4-3. That makes another winning series. It is the fourth win in their last five series with a record of 9-6 in their last 15 games.
It was a great day at Wrigley Field and a great day for some baseball. Once again, I had the pleasure of sitting with the Left Field Bleacher Bums. It is a great experience I look forward to every time I visit the Friendly Confines.
Go Cubs Go!
Pictured below is Dave Rudstein a long time Left Field Bleacher Bum and die hard Cubs fan. He continues with a left field tradition of helping young fans get a game baseball from Soriano in-between innings.
Originally published on Sep 18, 2008, here is a tribute to the best fans in baseball. The Original Left Field Bleacher Bums. Who loved the Chicago Cubs in good times and in bad. Ron Grousl was the very first to throw back a visiting teams home run ball. This started that tradition. Howard Herbon made a bedsheet sign that said "Hit the Bleacher Bum" with a hole in the middle. Before there was Murphy's Bleachers there was Ray's Bleachers which was their hangout before and after the games. Owner P.K. Wrigley paid for their road trip to Atlanta in 1969.
