The Cubs stopped the Cards 8-game win streak with a 6 - 5 victory tonight at Busch Stadium. The 2:56 affair was very entertaining and included the Cubs manager getting ejected. As a TV baseball director, sometimes it is better to be lucky than good. A few moments before the ejection, I put the home plate umpire and the Cubs' manager in a split screen. The manager was yelling and the umpire was trying to get him to stop. Then, with the split screen on line, the umpire threw the manager out of the game. A nice piece of video. I prefer a well pitched 2 - 1 game over a 6 - 5 game with alot of offense like tonight but I'll take good luck over both of those scenarios.
