Tribune reporter

The Cubs weren't the only ones to lose out during Friday's game at Wrigley Field. Two people face multiple forgery charges after they tried to spend counterfeit $20 bills during the 2-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Glen Rice, 32, of south suburban Glenwood, and Jennifer Taylor, 31, of Chicago, allegedly bought items from several concession stands with fake money during the Pirates' blanking of the Cubs, according to court documents.

Taylor faces an additional charge of possession of counterfeit currency because she had more of the knock-off bills in her possession, according to court documents.

The two were fingered for the crime by vendors, and ballpark security detained the two, according to court documents.

Rice was ordered held in lieu of $50,000 bail Sunday at Cook County Bond Court, while Taylor was released on her own recognizance.
