WATCH: Frank Schwindel Hits the Game-Winning Grand Slam

Chicago Cubs

It wasn’t a walk-off this time, but come on with this guy. Frank Schwindel did it again.

With the Cubs down a run in the 7th, Schwindel came up with the bases loaded. And since it was Grand Slam Day in baseball, and since Schwindel is in full on HERO MODE, you know exactly what happened:

GRAND. SLAM. FRANK. SCHWINDEL.

Dude went down and got it, too, still managing to barrel it up. Sure, that ball doesn’t leave any park but Wrigley Field, but I reckon it clears the bases in a bunch of ’em. With that shot, Schwindel increased his season numbers – even including the ones from his time with the A’s, when they were only giving him sporadic pinch-hit appearances – up to .338/.383/.655 with a 173 wRC+. What do you even say at this point? He won’t keep this up into next year, but the guy can clearly hit a bit.

And right now, he’s as clutch as it gets.
