Cubs In Haiku: Sweepless In Wrigleyville

Come from behind win
Fun afternoon at Wrigley
Avoid Brewers' sweep

Whodathunkit?

The Cubs came from behind twice on Thursday - scoring six runs in the sixth inning to tie up the game, then rallying for three in the ninth to win on Alfonso Soriano's (yes, Alfonso Soriano's) walk off RBI single. Fewer than 29,000 fans bought tickets, but the fraction of those who remained at Wrigley after four hours of lackluster baseball were thrilled with the way it ended.

The victory helped the Cubs  avoid being swept by their division rivals. Although can we still call anyone a "rival" when we're 12 games behind the FOURTH PLACE Brewers and the only team with a worse record in either league is Houston?

But it was one of those rare days when it was (mostly) fun to be a Cubs fan. Especially since the outcome was so unexpected when the bottom of the ninth began.
