Thursday Night Baseball: Dodgers at Cubs

29 May 2009 No Comment

Only a few times per season do the Cubs play a Thursday night game. Rather than go out to dinner before the game we chose to grill on our deck up until game time.

Obtaining Tickets
Once again, with my parents in town (and my mom wanting to attend the game) w needed to buy one extra ticket. However, since we ate dinner in the house, we did not have time to wander around Wrigley Field looking for a free ticket as we did on Tuesday night. Rather I saw a scalper I know outside of Murphy’s Bleachers and bought an upper deck reserved ticket for $10 (face value $22). It did not matter where the ticket was located since we were planning to sit together.

The Game
Randy Wolf kept the Cubs bats quiet as he scattered six hits over seven innings. The Dodgers defeated the Cubs 2-1 after Ramon Troncoso struck out both Bobby Scales and Jake Fox with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th inning.
