Wow. Some serious emotional swings there in that one.
The Cubs came back and held on. Whew.
A frustrating close one becomes a laugher.
Jake Arrieta: no-hitter. Take a bow.
One bad inning, and so many missed opportunities.
Kershaw gonna Kershaw.
Offense overwhelmed, pitching bombed out. Let’s imagination dance!
Cubs didn’t quite get the timely hits, and couldn’t hold down the Giants the third time through the order.
Things got a little dicey in the later innings, but the Cubs had built a big enough lead for it to hold up.
Fail to complete the shutout in the top of the 9th? No worries. It’s walk-off time.
Jason Hammel was solid, and the Cubs’ bats were explosive. That’s a nice combination, and it gave the team a four-game sweep.
In a season full of great wins, this is right up there among the best.
