(CBS) Maybe it was the drowsiness of last night’s 16-inning marathon or perhaps it was just a classic Cubs moment, but Chicago left fielder Junior Lake didn’t have the same jersey on as his teammates for the first inning of Thursday’s game at Pittsburgh.
While his teammates had gray tops with “Cubs” in big letters across the front, Lake had on a gray jersey with “Chicago” spelled out in smaller letters. Lake’s is the old version of Chicago’s road uniform.

Update: After realizing the harmless gaffe in the early innings, Lake changed into the correct jersey.
