Image result for cubs keith moreland

Cubs beat the Wacha and the Cards 5-4 in a heart stopper backed by a great bullpen performance (until the 9th) an UNBELIEVABLE game ending play by Russell and another great game by Byrant with a moon shot HR into the wind onto the street, 2 R, 2 RBI and a defensive gem at a key moment.  The Cubs gave everybody a bit of a scare in the 9th but hold on for the win to move .5 games back of the Pirates for home field advantage pending their game late tonight at LA.  The Giants are currently playing at home vs. the D-backs where with their loss the CMN drops to 5.

Rachel -- great pic -- my favorite Cubs jersey of all. I've got it hanging up in my closet and will be wearing it at Wrigley next weekend! Go Cubs!

Interesting stat: the Cubs lead the season series with the Bucs 10-6 with three head-to-head games remaining. So, they've locked up the tiebreaker for home field advantage in the one-off Wild Card game: if the Cubs & Pirates finish with identical regular-season records, the Cubs would host the NLWC game.
