Pirates vs Cubs 7/13/19
This game wasn’t even close. The Cubs scored 7 runs in the 1st inning alone and the Pirates pitcher only lasted 2/3rd of an inning. Not a fun day for Pirates players and fans. Lester, the pitcher, even hit a home run. Pirates were able to hit some, but still came up short by a bunch. It was a fun game for the crowd though that’s for sure! There were 5 home runs total, and Marte with the Pirates hit 2 of them.
Final: 10-4 with Cubs on top of Pirates.
I knew Wrigley was going to be good, and it matched the hype for sure. It was a 1 PM perfect Saturday afternoon sunny and a bit breezy game. I knew that they don’t get too many baseball game days like this since it’s Chicago and takes a while to warm up and not too windy due to the lakes. The food options were good, the seats were good, and getting on the jumbo-tron was the icing on the cake to the game. Seeing Lester hit a home run was incredible too! After the game, I got to check out the Goose Island brewery a few miles away on the train. Solid place with unique brewery site only beer available. Overall, it was a fantastic day!
