Struggling Neifi Perez of the also struggling Chicago Cubs just hit a grand slam in the top of the 10th against the St. Louis Cardinals to ensure the Cubs' win, 8-4. This was Neifi's first homer in 110 at bats in the Cards' home stadium. Color that streak snapped.
I'm only tangentially a Cubs fan (The Boyfriend is dyed-in-the-wool, however), and even less so a Neifi Perez fan (he used to play for my SF Giants, and not nearly as well) but I am a baseball fan. And this was one of those transcendent summer moments that, in the face of salary nonsense and steroid scandals, just makes you beam, grateful for the game.
