Cubs Get Walkoff Hit-By-Pitch, Sweep Braves: Cubs 3, Braves 2 (11 Innings)
Jim Edmonds almost had the chance to be a hero twice in one game; the first time, he hit a dramatic ninth-inning homer to send the game to extras, and the second time in the eleventh, when he should have come to the plate with the bases loaded. Instead, he got yanked for pinch-hitter Reed Johnson after Bobby Cox sent lefty Jeff Ridgeway to the mound. Johnson got hit by the first pitch in the at-bat to send the Wrigley Field faithful home quite happy, but robbing Hollywood of another chance at glory. Edmonds drove in two of the Cubs' three runs, and is actually doing pretty well for himself with the Tiny Bears, hitting .264/.316/.434 with two — as of this game — homers. I may yet have to say nice things about Edmonds, and Helen might have to grit her teeth a lot more as the season progresses.
