Cubs Lose Series Opener 7-2

SHARE Cubs Lose Series Opener 7-2

Manny Ramirez and Joe Torre brought their winning postseason ways to the Los Angeles Dodgers- and to and Wrigley Field as well. In tonight’s NL playoff opener, the host Chicago Cubs were leading 2-0 when James Loney hit a go-ahead grand slam off a wild Ryan Dempster. And then both Ramirez and Russell Martin homered as the new-look Dodgers beat the Cubs 7-2. The Cubs entered the postseason with the best record in the league, hoping for a fast start 100 years after their last World Series championship. But Ramirez and Torre, winners of six World Series crowns in the AL, wound up on top in their first playoff game together.
