This is an alltime rivalry moment, like the Sox beatdown in game 3 of the ALDS last year. The Cubs came in only 3 games behind STL and would have even been ahead if they had won all four one run games (they went into the ninth ahead twice!), but instead they are seven out with six left and likely out of the wild card game too, while STL is very likely to win the division.
White Sox up on Cleveland 4-0 in the 5th. If CLE drops this, they’ll be in a tough spot: 2 back with 3 to playDaniel Palka homered for the White Sox just now, raising his OPS to...
That barely seems possible, but he was 7 for 78 with no extra base hits before that, so there you go.
It’s 9.I wonder, what's the record for longest losing streak to end the season by a team finishing above .500?
Decent chance Cubs lose the last 12 in a row to finish 82-80.
One game behind? You try very hard.Cards and Brewers are both losing big. If you’re the Brewers how hard do you try to win the last couple of games? Maybe just be as ready as possible for the wild card game. If the two games end like this they are 1 game behind StL
Isn’t that usually the case?Molina charges the mount after Hamels barely hits him. Benches clear. About 100 players on the field. Nothing happens.
Yes. My real points were that the ball barely hit him so the whole thing was stupid, and that with expanded rosters, the field was packed.Isn’t that usually the case?
benches empty, and people just stand around yelling at each other. We get a real brawl once or twice a season though.
