This week didn’t quite match last week’s intense level of excitement, as no three-star games were played. The most exciting game, the Astros-Cubs contest of Sept. 16, featured some late-inning drama from two struggling teams. Carlos Lee hit a two-run homer in the top of the ninth to tie the game at 3-3. However, the Astros ended up dropping the contest when Marlon Byrd hit a walk-off infield single in the 12th on a dribbler that was ruled fair despite replays showing that it may have been foul.
