Virtual Baseball: Darvish Whirls Past Yanks, Ending Streak. Cubs Rake the Maple.

The Virtual Yankees' 12-game winning streak fell short of 13 tonight, as Yu "Whirling" Darvish was staked to a big lead and held on for an 8-7 win tonight.

The Pre-Adolescent Bears rubbed the bark right off the Big Maple early on, with solo homers by Wilson Contreras and Jason Hayward, and a grand slam off the bat of Anthony Rizzo powering Ursa to a major, 8-3 lead.

Darvish was soon brought back to dharma, though, thanks to homers by Gio Urshela, Mike Tauchman, and a three-run triple by Aaron Hicks, starting in centerfield for the first time all season.  Back-to-back singles by Hicks and Torres, and a walk to Miguel Andujar loaded the bases against Cubs reliever Pedro Strop in the ninth.

But Rizzo's flat-out, diving grab of a line drive off the bat of Gary Sanchez put an abrupt if unsatisfying end to the game for Yankees fans, who consoled themselves by firing major fireworks at the elevated train behind the Stadium.

After the game, Jesse "the Body" Ventura held his first East Coast rally in the infield, drawing literally dozens of excited followers.

Current presidential polls put Ventura second in this year's presidential race, with 14 percent of the vote.  With the Dow now approaching 50,000, President Trump holds a commanding lead with 69 percent, while Democratic frontrunner has moved into positive numbers for the first time, with 2 percent.  "Don't know and don't care" made up the rest of the poll.

I expect that the next virtual game will report that Hicks tweaked a gonad in his first game in center and will be out for 4 to 6 weeks.
