Happy "Ryne Sandberg Game" Day Cubdom!

Wednesday, June 23, 2004

From the Cubdom.com Cubs Calendar

June 23rd, 1984 - The Ryne Sandberg Game, 2 game tieing homeruns in a comeback win vs. the Cardinals. This game is cited as the turning point in the Cubs 1984 pennant winning season.

Twenty years ago today, the Cubs beat the Cardinals 12-11 as Ryne Sandberg homered twice off Bruce Sutter, thus endearing him to Cubs fans forever. Now, its time for the Baseball Writers of America to elect him to the Hall of Fame!

I was hoping to have my Ryne Sandberg fan page finished before today, but check it out!

Update: They finally released The Sandberg Game on DVD! You can buy it from the Amazon link above.

Trust me, losing isn't lovable

The Cubs lost 10-9 on Wednesday to the Cards. Glendon Rusch finally had a rough outing, and the bullpen collapsed after the Cubs offense scored 6 runs in the sixth inning. The Cubs committed 3 errors, and the winning run scored on a Paul Bako passed ball. Ouch!

Cubs Win! Cubs Win! Cubs Win! Holy Cow!

On Tuesday, the Cubs came back in the 8th inning on an Aramis Ramirez two run double! With Grudzielanek on second, and Sammy on first, A-Ram hit a double, on which Grudz scored easily. Wendell Kim went a wavin, and nearly sent Sammy to his death, but Mike Matheny dropped the ball as Sammy slid in with the go-ahead run.

Greg Maddux struggled a bit, allowing 3 (earned) runs in the first, but then settled down for the next four innings, not allowing any Cardinals to reach base. He finished the night having thrown 6.2 innings and allowing 4 runs. The Farns recorded a win, and Hawkins his ninth save. Yet another Come from behind win!
