Guys, I detest the Cubs. I make no secret of this. It’s even stated in my Twitter profile. So having to cover not one, but two games in which the Rangers lose to the Cubs does not make me a happy camper. NOT AT ALL. In fact, it makes me a bit rage-y.
So what happened? Well, you know that Colby Lewis who loves giving up home runs? Yeah, he showed up.
Things started out promising with an easy 1-2-3 1st inning. Then came the 2-run bomb to Joe Mather (AKA Joey Bombs…former Cardinal, so forgive me as I pout that he is now in Cubby blue). Then another home run (a 3-run shot), this one courtesy of former Ranger Alfonso Soriano. Humpf. I thought Colby only gave up solo shots? Where did that guy go?
