Tigers reward fans, beat Cubs at Wrigley
CHICAGO – Cubs fans, known for invading opposing ballparks around the Midwest, found themselves on the receiving end this week.
Detroit Tigers fans noticeably overwhelmed Wrigley Field as interleague play resumed, turning the Friendly Confines into Motown South. Their “Let’s go Tigers” chants were met with half-hearted boos and were easily drowned out.
The Tigers gave their fans plenty to celebrate Thursday with their 5-3 win against the Cubs to take two of three games in the series. The Cubs (21-42) couldn't overcome a late one-run deficit, and Detroit outfielder Austin Jackson's two-run homer in the ninth helped stave off the Cubs, who managed a run off closer Jose Valverde.
