Game Recap in Brief: Marlins 2, Cubs 1
I'm away from home tonight, so there isn't a lot of time for any recap.
Instead, I will leave you with these thoughts:
1. Bob Howry tried his hardest to give up a homer in his inning of work, but the Marlins managed to non-chalantly turn their backs while whistling, allowing him to escape unscathed.
2. Henry Blanco was recently voted most likely to shiv you in a shower.
3. I can't say that I blame Fontenot for not throwing his tiny frame across the plate in an attempt to make contact with what should have been called a ball. However, after the home plate umpire called it a strike the first time, then Fontenot should have been playing a more defensive game with his bat.
4. Can't win 'em all. Gotta take 'em one day at a time. God willing, the Cubs will catch them the next time. Let's wait and see what happens. And other cliches. Go Cubs.
