What a game.
If the first game of this four game series between the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers is any indication of how this series will be, then we are in for a hell of a weekend.
The Cubs jumped out to a 2-0 lead before Milwaukee took the lead in the eighth inning. Chicago was down to its final strike before Javier Baez ripped a single to score Ian Happ and tie the game.
After Wade Davis got out of a bases loaded 1-out jam, the Cubs had the top of their lineup ready for the 10th inning. Jon Jay led off with a double off the wall and then Kris Bryant did this:

The Cubs would put two more runners on in the inning but failed to get them home. Chicago held on to win game one of this big series extending their lead to 4 1/2 and dropping the magic number down to 6.
