COMMENTARY | Never in a million years would I have predicted that the Chicago Cubs would have a tough decision about where to put Matt Garza upon his return from the disabled list.
If the Pittsburgh Pirates truly want to contend, they will probably need to improve their play against the lowly Chicago Cubs.
COMMENTARY | The Chicago White Sox are headed back to Chicago with a 19-23 record, where they will play 10 straight games and 17 out of their next 23.

Wife douses husband with beer in Wrigley Field bleachers after he tries to protect her from homer (Big League Stew)
It started with a chivalrous act gone wrong, was followed by a beer bath and ended with a high-five. A couple caught the attention of baseball fans at Wrigley Field on Sunday and the ones watching at home on TV. Why? His-and-her beer baths! It happened when Chicago Cubs pitcher Travis Wood hit a home run to left field in the fifth inning. A husband in the bleachers tried to protect his wife from the ball, but in the process spilled his beer on her. So, in return, she dumped her beer on his head. This was not a cheap lovers spat. The Cubs have one of the highest beer prices in the league — $7.25 for a small beer, so that's $14.50, minus whatever they had already gulped down.

You never know where a home run ball will land. Sometimes you catch them and sometimes they hit you square in the face. So, if you're at the game with your wife, you should protect her from these flying projectiles -- but please, do not spill her beer in the process.

Not even a lengthy delay can slow down the Boston Red Sox' run.
