The Chicago Cubs fell behind early in the game and were staring at their fifth loss in their last six games.
Then they rallied.
Trailing 4-2 to the Milwaukee Brewers late, the Cubs scored one run in the eighth to cut the lead to 4-3. After Jon Jay got on with one out, Miguel Montero followed suite with a single to give runners on the corners with one out.
That’s when the magic happened. Reigning NL MVP Kris Bryant tied the game on a single off Neftali Perez, giving the Cubs new life.
Two batters later, Addison Russell won it for the Cubs with this blast:
