Play of the Day: A Cubs Runner Reaches Third Base!

The closest the Cubs came to scoring occurred in the fifth inning.  New guy, Blake DeWitt, led off with a single, and then the eighth hitter in the lineup, OPS team leader, Geovany Soto, followed with a single.

Unfortunately, the problem with batting your best hitter eighth means that when he gets on base, the pitcher is up next.  With Tom Gorzelanny batting, Bronson Arroyo uncorked a wild pitch that allowed the runners to advance to second and third with nobody out.

So that was it.  The wild pitch.  That was the best thing to happen to the Cubs today.
