A bottom of the 9th, come-back, walk-off win? Does it get better? Yes. It does. It was against the Cardinals.
Matt Garza didn’t have his best stuff, but he certainly pitched well enough to win, especially against a potent Cardinals’ lineup. The Cubs didn’t have an extra base hit all night, and the bats mostly slumbered, but a walk by Bryan LaHair, a walk by Geovany Soto, and then a game-winning single by Joe Mather. Bam. Nicely done, boys.
Yet, somehow, the walk-off win might not have been the most shocking thing tonight…
