If you missed the game today and want to enjoy the moment a Chicago Cubs player actually came through with the bases loaded, here’s Mr. Clutch himself to provide that moment.
David Bote didn’t hit a grand slam, but it still worked out:

0-2, and he was ready for that mistake middle in. Gotta love that.
Since the Cubs were the road team for the second game of the doubleheader, that was merely a lead-grabbing hit instead of a walk-off. Still, it should be added to the pantheon of huge and clutch David Bote moments – heck, it was the second in this series alone. Cubs win, Cubs win.
