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!

    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.”
