The Cubs came back to take the lead from a 9-3 deficit in the 6th when Adrian Cardenas hit a stand-up triple that scored Jackson, Aducci, and Sappelt. But the A's took back the lead in the 8th, making it 10-9. Dave Sappelt's base running paid off in the 8th when he scored on a wild throw to tie the game at 10. But the A's managed to score 2 more runs and take the win. Here are some photos from today's game:
