No Joke With This Grand Entrance

leave a comment »

On a local sports talk radio show today that was broadcast at the same time as the Pirates first game of the season, the guy said, “Neil Walker hits a grand slam. No, this is not an April Fools’ joke.”

I still had to change the radio station to the game to actually believe it.

The 6-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday resembled a lot of losses at Wrigley Field over the years with other skippers in the dugout.

The Cubs looked comfortable with a 2-0 lead and Ryan Dempster on the mound. And then suddenly a couple of walks and two swings of the bat changed everything and spoiled opening day.

Dempster gave up a grand slam to Neil Walker in the fifth — after two walks — and a two-run homer to Andrew McCutchen in the seventh after getting two outs.
