CHICAGO -

A Chicago Cubs fan trying to protect his wife from a homer ended up getting soaked with beer.

The husband and wife were in the stands at Wrigley Field when Travis Wood hit a home run ball their way in the fifth inning.

When the husband tried to protect his wife from getting hit by the ball, he spilled his beer on her.

Adding insult to injury, his wife then threw her beer on him.

"I figured if I'm wet, he should be wet, too," she told reporters.

She said she realized the splash was on television when her cellphone started ringing with text messages.
