The Morning After: The Night The Lights Went Out At Wrigley
By Marcus Gilmer in News on May 27, 2010 3:00PM
Last night's game between the Cubs and Dodgers will likely be remembered for its wacky interruption - a power outage that shut off the Wrigley Field lights in the fourth inning. But a game of baseball was also played and the Cubs suffered their own power outage, falling 8-5 to Los Angeles. Tom Gorzelanny gave up seven runs - five earned - over five innings. The Cubs, as usual, struggled with knocking home runners, batting 3 for 15 with runners in scoring position and stranding nine men on base. In the third, they had the bases loaded with no outs but only brought in one run when Mike Fontenot was hit by a pitch. Down 7-2 late, the Cubs knocked in a few runs but never got a full rally going. As for the power outage, which delayed the game for 18 minutes, ComEd reported a falling tree on Racine as the culprit. It's the third light outage at Wrigley since they were installed in 1988 and the first time since 2003. The teams tango one more time this afternoon (1:20 p.m., CSN).
