Although a Mets' fan, I still felt sorry for the Nats, coming so close

and ending up a run short. I hope the Dodgers beat the Cubs

like a drum. One small correction--the runner was picked off

first in the bottom of the eighth, not the ninth. Now we'll never

know if the Nats might have scored with two outs in that inning.

Cubs won the longest nine inning game in baseball history, according to ESPN.  There were 390 pitches in the game, 190 by the Cubs.  There were 15 walks in the game, a Washington base runner called out on replay in the bottom of the 9th, 3 hit batters, and the Cubs went through their entire starting pitching lineup.  In the 5th inning, the Washington pitcher struck out a Cub, but the catcher let the ball pass and roll to the fence; then, when the catcher tried to throw out the runner, he threw the ball into center field!  Long game, but it wasn't boring!

Still seems a bit funny to me that the Astros(nee: the Colt .45s) are now in the American League. I still remember back in the day when the Dodgers would beat up on 'em almost every summer while both teams were chasing the National League pennant.

 

(...and of course I'm also old enough to remember when the Astrodome first opened for business and was billed as the "The Eighth Wonder of the Modern World")

I still have a hard time thinking of the Astros as an AL team too. The

fact that they have been rather mediocre doesn't help either. I don't

recall that tag for the Astrodome, but I do remember their original

name of the Colt. 45s. Probably wouldn't go there today. I believe they

came in with the Mets back in '62. 


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

I am hoping for a Dodgers-Astros World Series, though that doesn't

have the nostalgic appeal of a Dodgers-Yankees throw down.
