Here's something you don't see every day: two blown saves in one game by the same team!
Kerry Wood blew his save chance in the ninth for the Cubs when he allowed a home run to Pirates outfielder Jason Bay. The Cubs offense came to the rescue in extra innings, only to have Kevin Hart blow another save opportunity in the 14th inning! Hart would end up the recording the win, but that's besides the point. The third time was the charm for the Cub's pen, as Sean Marshall slammed the door shut against the Pirates in the bottom of the 15th inning.
Not exactly a model of efficiency, but a win's a win.
