I hope this name doesn't stick just because it usually means there was a breakdown in pitching, but when the Cubs came back from being down 3 runs with 2 outs in the top of the 10th, that's just something you don't see every day.
Lester got dinged up pretty good in his 5.2 innings, giving up 9 hits, 2 walks and 5 runs.
And the Cub bats were hitting solo with a shots from Heyward and Baez.
It got better as the game went along, but that last oomph never came - they left runners on 2nd and 3rd in the 6th, 7th and 8th.
But then the 9th.
Just. So. Satisfying.
Montero singles, Almora strikes out, then a HUGE at bat by Kyle Schwarber.
The ump calls a strike that was pretty far outside.
Then the next one is WAY off the plate inside, and I've never seen this but Schwarber really really gave the ump a hard time which was awesome, and Len JD were all, "THOSE BOTH CAN'T BE STRIKES MAN".
Call 'em in or call 'em out but don't call 'em both.
And then a foul on a pitch down the middle.
And then a pitch up above the catcher's head, I have to think it was a fastball - the high heat that nobody can hit, and Shwarber freaking pulls it.
He's such an animal.
A double and now for the 4th inning in a row there are Cubs at 2nd and 3rd.
It's gotta happen, right?
Kris Bryant lines out to short.
And then Rizzo comes in and yeah, Reds right fielder Scott Schebler got to take about 5 steps and juuuust get to the warning track, but Rizzo's liner was soooo smoked all Schebler could do was play it off a Budweiser sign.
Then in the top of the 11th with Almora on 3rd, Bryant hit a fly ball that's not deep enou... WAIT! 3rd base coach Gary Jones sends Almora, the throw is up the line and Almora is safe.
Wade Davis came in and looked like Wade freaking Davis, striking out 2 including the last out.
Did you see his last strike? Wow.
Len says, "The Comeback Cubs", and now it's officially a thing.
That's 3 come-from-behinders in a row.
Next game at noon.
What an awesome Saturday.
