“Yeah, what happened in the Cubs game this afternoon? I missed it.”
“They scored seven runs in the first inning!”
“Why, that’s fantastic! So they won, right? RIGHT? Hello? HELLO? I think our connection dropped....”
Yes, the Cubs scored seven runs in the first inning in Milwaukee Wednesday afternoon. By the time this extremely long game was over, the Brewers beat the Cubs by more than that, winning 15-7. All three games in this series went at least 3:40 and this one was the longest at 3:47.
Really, this is all you need to know about this game:
Today's Cubs-Brewers game is the first game in the modern era to have both teams lead by 7+ runs within the first 4 innings.
