What a game it was. Right from the start pitcher Jake Arrieta led the team by striking out Pirate after Pittsburgh Pirate. It was amazing to watch this guy at his absolute best!
My family and I were in awe pretty much throughout the whole game at how good Arrieta played and how the team in general rallied behind him to keep the game scoreless. When Kyle Schwarber stepped up to the plate and hit that home run we all went nuts with excitement and knew it was going to be a fantastic night of baseball. And it was. 🙂
This video from MLB.com gives a nice recap of the game and how it all went down.
Now as they prepare to start the playoff games, we wish them nothing but the best. And may Jake Arrieta bring us more awesomeness – you can do it Jake! We are so behind you and cheering you on and on.
Go Jake!!! Go Cubbies!!!
Did you watch the wildcard game? What did you think? How exciting was Arrieta?
Next game is tomorrow – Friday 10/09/2015 against the St. Louis Cardinals. These two teams have a long standing rivalry which should make for another super exciting match up.
We can’t wait for the playoff games and are literally on the edge of our seats to see how this pans out and dare we say – how close we get to the WORLD SERIES!!!!! 🙂 🙂
