I shoulda had this one laying around, right?
Some kind of "Hail Szczur" illustration for just this purpose.
Szczur hit a grand slam off the Atlanta Braves' Chris Withrow in a pressure packed at-bat just after the Cubs had taken a 1-run lead.
One out, bases loaded.
Anthony Rizzo had just knocked in a run with a single.
Szczur had just been put in for Soler at the top of the inning when the game was tied 1 up.
And of course you maybe couldn't help but think man I sure wish it was Soler up instead.
But that thought went away pretty quick.
Grand Freaking Salami.
Had Emily's radio on in the office, and it got a little loud there for a minute.
If you weren't a Matt Szczur fan before, you gotta be now.
Jon Lester was awesome again, this time with 10 Ks and just the one run in seven innings.
Of course, he had another hiccup fielding a bunt that I'll choose to ignore.
Cubs have won 4 in a row and lead all baseball with 17 wins.
More Braves today.
Go John Lackey and Go Cubs!
