Welcome to another weekend edition of Down on the Farm right here on Cubbies Crib. Now our big league Cubs fell to the St. Louis Cardinals in the final game of the three-game set, but we have something else to be very excited about. The Kane County Cougars have been playing amazing baseball to start the 2014 regular season and entered the day with a sterling record of 20-9.
Not only were the Cougars looking to improve to 21-9 on the season, but something after the game took place. There was a standoff, yes a standoff, between the Cougars bullpen and the Burlington Bees. I believe the standoff between both bullpens lasted over five hours. In the end, the Cougars were left standing. Now let’s see if they were able to pick up another victory before having this outrageous contest, shall we?
