It was ping pong baseball in the thin air a mile high in Denver as the Cubs dropped two of three from the Rockies. Definitely an anomaly with Jason Hammel and the Cubs defense giving up 7 runs in the first inning alone yesterday. Addison Russell hit a homerun into a garbage can when the game was out of hand, which was a perfect encapsulation of the day, really. Lin was at the Pearl Jam concert at Wrigley and had a considerably better time there at the show that lasted longer than did the Cubs game earlier in the day. The Cubs still have a twelve game lead in the division, so there’s room for error.
