The Cubs were winning
Until suddenly they weren't
And then it got worse
A three run Alfonso Soriano home run gave the Cubs a 4-1 lead in the third inning on Sunday.  Even after the Yankees fought back to tie the game in the sixth, Cubs fans could remain hopeful.  But the bullpen gave up three runs in each of the last two innings, giving the Yankees an easy win to take the interleague series 2 games to 1.  Of course, they weren't helped by plays like the one shown above, when Soriano and Reed Johnson allowed A-Rod's fly ball to drop at the base of the wall in left.
