Game 157 – Cubs 9 Mets 6

This game doesn’t count?

The Cubs aren’t playing that way

Mets fans look so sad

Howry gets the win

Lee and A-Ram deliver

Wood’s thirty-fourth save!

Game 154 – Cardinals 1 Cubs 5

“Second string” beats Cards

Shows the strength of the Cubs bench

That’s why we’ll go far

Lou lets starters rest

Getting ready for playoffs

We see future stars

McGehee at third base

Goes 2-for-3 including

His first big league hit

Then there was Hoffpauir

The Triple-A superstar

Playing in left field

Who is Randy Wells?

New guy gets Pujols to ground

Into double play!

Some familiar Cubs

Contributed to the win

With all the new guys

Pie in center

2-for-4 with a triple

And he scored two runs

Kosuke, 2-for-4

He’ll be ready for playoffs

Back in April form?

Even Bob Howry

Couldn’t blow this victory

Uneventful ninth

Last game at Wrigley

For the regular season

October? – Priceless!
