There were some strange Cubby occurrences in the Reds’ fourth inning.
The game was interrupted briefly when a cat ran onto the outfield during Joey Votto’s at-bat. A security guard cornered the feline and lifted it by its tail off the field near the Cubs bullpen. Votto walked. Remember the black cat that circled Ron Santo in the on-deck circle at Shea Stadium in 1969?
One out later, Bruce lofted a ball in foul territory along the left field line. Alfonso Soriano chased it down but a fan caught the ball. Sound familiar? Bruce then hit a single, driving in Votto to tie the game at 2.
