This is one of the many reasons why I love baseball. There's nothing like this in sports - the Cubs should be dead. Scoreless through eight innings with the Brewers, Milwaukee tacks on three in the top of the ninth. So here are the Cubbies, down 3-0 in the bottom of the ninth. They bring the tying run to the plate in newcomer Kosuke Fukudome (pronounced KOH-skay foo-koo-DOH-me). Let Brent Musberger and Orel Hershiser bring you the rest...

Ah, but alas, just when you think the big Mo (that's momentum, people) is on the side of the Cubbies, one thing must always...be...remembered.

These are the CUBS!

The Brew Crew tacked on a run in the top of the 10th, and they went on to win 4-3. Folks, I've said it before, and I'll say it now - these are the games that you can not lose. When you've ripped victory away from the other team, you have to go for the kill. I think it is essential that you get the win.

Welcome back, baseball. Thanks to Mother Nature (who once told us that it's nice to fool with her), the Yankees will try again tonight.
