The Cubs couldn’t nail down a shutout in the top of the 9th today, but, as is so often the case with this team, the hiccup was just prelude to drama.

Kris Bryant, please send everyone home happy:

I love how the ball just keeps going, and going, and going. The right fielder looks like he’s about to camp under it, and then backs up. Backs up a little more. Backs up to the wall. Oh, it’s actually 10 rows deep.

I also always love the celebrations. Pedro Strop coming in with Bryant. Hector Rondon’s face of elation. Party at the plate.


Keep Reading BN ...
