Cubs 365, May 3
The Cubs were no exception. In that first game, they made four errors. Ron Santo, Don Kessinger, Randy Hundley, and Bill Hands all succumbed. Those errors led to five unearned runs, and before the Cubs knew it, they had lost the game 10-2.
It certainly wasn't their only loss in 1966. Despite having four future Hall of Famers on the roster, the Cubs finished the 1966 season 44 games under .500, 36 games out of first, in the basement of the National League.
