Game Write-up: Cubs beat Cardinals with Aramis Ramirez walk-off home run

Camera: Sony Cybershot DSC-H1

Kevin Gregg, who typically closes, was brought in with men on first and second in the eighth inning with none out. In his best outing of the young season, Gregg struck out Joe Thurston and Colby Rasmus before inducing a ground ball from Skip Schumaker. By holding the Cardinals scoreless, Gregg preserved the 5-5 tie, allowing the Cubs to eventually win it on an Aramis Ramirez walk-off home run in the bottom of the eleventh. So yes, sometimes it's ok to bring in the closer an inning early.
