WATCH: Ben Zobrist Hits an Extra-Innings Double to Give the Cubs the Lead (Heard That One Before?)

Chicago Cubs

Ben Zobrist has never hit an extra-inning double to give the Cubs the lead before, right? Certainly not any that I can recall …

OK, so tonight’s installment was not QUITE as dramatic as that one, but it did FINALLY break the tie in the 15th inning after so many missed opportunities for the Cubs. Bonus, it was Zobrist’s first extra-base hit of the year:

Zobrist would himself later score on a Kris Bryant sac fly, which proved to be critical since, of course, the Cubs allowed two runs in the bottom of the 15th.

Whew. Thank goodness for Clutch Zobrist, who also made a nice catch to end the game.
