Chicago Cubs: A surprise WS veteran in left field

The on-field play was fantastic. Pitchers were moved in throughout late innings to battle left or right-handed batters on both teams.

As these games are usually only seven innings, toward the tenth, very junior pitchers were getting their chance to throw some heat from the lean bullpens. Outfielders were making amazing catches throughout the evening to get their team off the field and back to bat.

Speaking of great outfield play, former World Series champion outfielder Chris Coghlan made some big catches in left field that night. He did have one slip in the outfield that caused everyone to hold their breath as he came up limping. It seems that Coghlan worked through his injuries and is currently sitting on a .345 AVG as he awaits his call back to Wrigley.
