Game #263 - Chicago Cubs, 10 @ Pittsburgh Pirates, 6
Just an ugly, sloppy game! The Cubs were up 10-1 until Lee Lacy hit a three run homer in the eighth and Jason Thompson hit a solo shot immediately after. Every position player for Chicago recorded at least one hit as John Candelaria nearly doulbed his hits allowed for the season.
