Hey, another fun Cubs-related game result for your evening before you close up shop: the Double-A Tennessee Smokies not only just won, and not only just walked it off, they won on a walk-off grand slam!
Infielder Jake Slaughter has been crushing the ball ever since he arrived at the Cubs’ Double-A affiliate, and he sent Smokies fans home happy with this walk-off blast:
Coming into tonight’s game, Slaughter was hitting a preposterous .379/.448/.741/204 wRC+ over his 15 games at Double-A, and now he’s added that homer and another single. I mean, he’s outhitting Matt Mervis right now there at Tennessee, and that just seems impossible! (Also, Mervis homered tonight, because of course he did.)
