Play of the Day: Carlos Lee Remembers He's Facing the Cubs

It just wouldn't be a series against the Astros without Carlos Lee junk-punching the Cubs at least once.  In today's game, he did twice, but its the first one that is the Play of the Day.

The sixth inning started ominously enough when Randy Wells walked Fat Elvis to start the inning and gave up an RBI double to the ever-annoying Hunter Pence.  Any thought of the Cubs getting it together and still winning a game that stood at 1-1 ended on the second pitch of the next at-bat when Lee took a Wells pitch down the left field line for a two-run homerun that put the Astros up 3-1.  They never looked back.

Lee added another two-run homer in the seventh inning, but that was just piling on at that point.
