One of the things that rarely gets discussed with regard to that whole eighth-inning meltdown is what a ****ty job Farnsworth did in relief of Prior.

Obviously, the Gonzalez error was the biggest gaffe, but the Cubs could have been out of the inning only down a run if Farnsworth could have retired the great Mike Mordecai. Instead, Mordecai cleared the bases with a two-out, three-double to take it from 4-3 to 7-3. That was the dagger in that game.
