Cubs, Brewers both blow first game of the season

Eric Gagne and Kerry Wood were productive as usual in their first game of the season.


The Chicago Cubs-Milwaukee Brewers game yesterday was a thing of beauty, as Kerry Wood and Eric Gagne were their usual selves, shades of their former selves, by both blowing the game. After a 0-0 tie through the whole game in a heated Carlos Zambrano-Ben Sheets matchup, Kerry Wood got things started in the 9th by hitting Rickie Weeks, walked Prince Fielder, gave up an RBI single to Ryan Braun and gave up a two-run double to Corey Hart, giving the Brewers a 3-0 lead.

Eric Gagne imploded in similar fashion for the Brewers, giving up a single to Derrek Lee, walking Aramis Ramirez, and then getting Fukudowned by giving up a Fuks-K bomb to deep right center for the tie.

The Brewers won in the 10th with a Tony Gwynn Jr. sac fly, but the damage was done. The Cubs kicked off their 100th season of futility with this and the new and improved Milwaukee bullpen, the one that did not pay a little more money for Francisco Cordero, also blew a save.

Have fun this year guys!
