August 22, 1985: Cubs (61-60) at Braves (38-82)

The Chicago Cubs came roaring back in the top of the ninth to spoil the anticipated celebration of the hometown fans. The final score,, was 7 to 4. 

Chicago won the game with a rally in the top of the 9th inning when they scored 4 runs on 4 hits. The biggest moment was provided by Ryne Sandberg who silenced the stadium when he lifted one out of the park for a two run home run. Chicago had a total of 12 hits for the game. 

The win went to Lary Sorensen(2-3) who allowed no runs in 1 inning. Lee Smith preserved the game for Sorensen, recording his his 29th save. The losing pitcher was Bruce Sutter(2-4) in relief. 

Eddie Haas was understandably not very talkative after his team's tough loss. He quickly showered and changed and when asked about the game had a terse, yet polite response, 'Hey fellows, that game was a heart-breaker to lose. Our guys gave it their all and played well - fate just wasn't smiling on us tonight'
