Cubs come back in ninth inning to win series against Giants

The Cubs clinched the series against the Giants in the ninth inning. What a great series!

I have fond memories of going to Cubs games in ’82 while at Medill – Northwestern University. You could walk up to the ticket counter on game day and sit behind home plate.

Now this is progress!

One thought on “Cubs come back in ninth inning to win series against Giants”

  1. Though I cringed, my friend and former colleague Henry Schulman of The Chronicle summed it up well:

    “The collapse was historic. It was complete. It spared no member of a flawed bullpen who took the mound at AT&T Park in the ninth inning. It was the most appropriate way for this disjointed, heaven-and-hell season to end.

    “For the first time in the Bruce Bochy era, the Giants are going home for the winter after losing a postseason game, and for the first time since 2008 another team will be crowned baseball’s champion in an even-numbered year.

    “The bullpen that Bochy awkwardly tried to manage all year through a minefield of ineffectiveness blew a three-run lead in the ninth Tuesday night, and the Cubs won 6-5 to capture the Division Series three games to one.”
