A fan just knocked a foul ball out of the glove of Cubs left fielder Moises Alou. So instead of two outs and a man on second, the Marlins batter drew a walk. Pudge Rodriguez is up, and he’s the tying run.
Rodriguez just got a base hit and a run scores. 3-1 Cubs.
Oh, no–an error on the Cubs’ shortstop, who led the National League shortstops this year in fielding percentage.
And now Derrek Lee just drove in two more runs.
I sure hope this isn’t the start of everything falling apart for the Cubs, only five outs shy of making the World Series.
Eight runs. The Marlins put across eight runs in the inning.
The ghost of 1984 is rearing its ugly head.
