Watch: David Bote Delivers Walk-Off Winner

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but David Bote came through in the clutch to deliver a game-winning RBI. After Pedro Strop blew the save opportunity in the top half of the ninth, Javy Báez doubled down the RF line and took advantage of a misplay to advance to third (because, El Mago, of course). After Willson got hit by a pitch, that brought Bote to the plate. As he’s done several times before, Bote delivered an opposite-field single to bring Javy home and give the Cubs a series victory over the DBacks.

As if that wasn’t good enough, Bote then told Kelly Crull that he had to rush out of Wrigley to catch a flight as his wife is expected to deliver their third child this evening. Wow!

  1. Never would expected a Cubs win in a game that Chatwood started, Strop gives up a HR and the offense gets just 2 runs.

  2. La Stella has 6 HR to set a new career high and has 2 multi HR games and we can’t even hit HR at home if the wind isn’t blowing hard out with these juiced balls.
