Chris & Bills' Almost Excellent Adventure

At this point Christopher is still smiling and optimistic (we haven't entered Wrigley yet).

Unfortunately this game reached its apex at this point. The Diamondback's second batter, Chad Tracy, crushed a ball through that stiff right field breeze to make it 1-0. Although he was in a jam in nearly every inning, which ran his pitch count up, Williams would only allow that run and deserved a better fate. The bull pen gave up 5 runs later and once again an anemic offense led to defeat.
