After a promising start to a weekend series up in Wisconsin, the Cubs outdid themselves on Saturday and Sunday.
On Saturday, Matt Garza gave up eight more hits (only 20 allowed in two starts so far–awesome) and the Cubs didn’t bother to score. But then, how are you expected to do anything against the mighty Narveson?
The highlight of the game came in the eighth, when Carlos Gomez of the Brewers decided to celebrate a rare feat for him–successfully reaching base–by stealing second and third with a five run lead.
But, to make matters even better, when he stole second base, Starlin Castro tried to do a sweep tag and instead did this:
Holy shit, that has to hurt. Keep your eye on the ball, Starlin, not your bicuspids.
That had to be the most humiliating thing that happened to any player this weekend, right?
(Cue Juan Pierre, and “Yakety Sax”)
Juan’s sterling defensive play continues to impress, even after all of these years. That gift led to the Rays actually winning their only game of the season so far.
But Juan, and Starlin, you boys are off the hook.
