Extra Innings Granny Crushes Astros

Posted on: July 28, 2009 11:49 am
Last night, Alfonso Soriano hit a grand slam off of Chris Sampson in the 13th inning to win the game for the Cubs, 5-1.

Sampson had pitched well, but in the 13th inning the wheels came off.  He looked like he was tired; he loaded the bases and then allowed the grand slam that ended it.

I suppose it's good that the game didn't go on longer.  But it sucks that such a winnable game got away.

In other news, Josh Beckett is 12-4 after a dominating seven inning, 10 K performance last night against Oakland.  He continues to be the team's ace and has kept his momentum going post-All Star Break.
