Jason Tevepaugh - 5 IP 5 Ks 12 R, but only 4 ER
Jay Clermont - great night behind the plate for all 9 innings
Dodgers Team - Great relay 7-6-5 in the bottom of the 2nd, nailing a runner at 3rd trying to stretch a double into a triple - potentially sparking the offense!!
Cubs Defense Highlights
Cubs Team - L-O-L!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Damon Bachman - Only bright spot of the game. 5 IP, 6K's, 2 BB and 2 ER
Joe Beitz - Congrats Dodgers, you guys fought your asses off when you could've packed it in early and didn't. Clawed back, pulled ahead, and never looked back. Well deserved! The better team won.
Stanley Helinski - Unfortunately we didn't have room in the budget for a cool individual trophy for everyone. But we did scrape enough for a leather bound copy of "The unwritten rules of baseball" just in case anyone needed to flip through it
