When you think about “walk-off grand slam” and the 2018 Chicago Cubs season, you’re going to think about David Bote’s shot to beat the Nationals. I understand. I don’t blame you.

But it comes close.
Months earlier, the Cubs were trailing the Phillies by a couple runs with two outs and two strikes in the 9th. The bases were loaded for Jason Heyward, who was facing a lefty who pumps it into the upper 90s. That game was over. Right?
Well, actually, right:
