It was a close game
But Cubs came up one run short
In typical style
Although the Cubs lost on Saturday, it was another exciting game.  The Yankees managed to get an insurance run on a Curtis Granderson sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth. It was a run that mattered when Reed Johnson homered to lead off the bottom of the ninth and bring the Cubs to within a run.
But fans were frustrated in typical fashion after an Alfonso Soriano single when Geovany Soto grounded into a double play on the first pitch and Blake DeWitt struck out on three pitches to end the game.
