CUBS COMEBACK PRECEDED BY FAN BRINGING SEXY BACK: The Cubs hijacked a game the Rockies deserved to win last night, despite the efforts of Chicago reliever Bobby Howry, who surrendered a 3-run homer as part of a six-run Rockie uprising in the top of the ninth (the Cubs plated two in the bottom to win).
Much more interesting was the reax of an inebriated Northsider ninny after Howry’s gopherball:
Howry on the incident: “He said, ‘What are you doing?’ I’m out here trying to give up home runs. What do you think? He wasn’t very big. I’d try and save the (pitching) hands.”
