4/16/10 Houston Astros 2, Chicago Cubs 7

Wrigley Field, Chicago, IL

More offensive display from our 2010 Cubs, another stellar performance by Carlos Silva, the only runs scored by the Astros weren't earned, but happened after a 2-out error from a near-collision in RC that should have ended the inning and kept the Astros blanked.

HOU 2 6 0
CHC 7 11 1

Both starting pitchers wore Jersey #52, and both catchers wore Jersey #55. Silva makes a baserunning blooper that one could only expect from a pitcher whose past 6 seasons were spent in the AL. He executes a beautiful SAC bunt but fails to make it stick, instead it's a BIDP as Silva doesn't make it to 1B and is thrown out by Chris Johnson to Pedro Feliz. Later we learn that Silva thought the ball was bunted off of his foot, and that's why he lost his chug to first. Carlos, please do this: run first, ask questions later. You are such a great pitcher this year, don't spoil it.

During Michael Bourn's PA in the 3rd, Wrigley Organist Gary Pressy plays "Born Free." He's a damn genius.
