Cubs Lost Game 3, But This Was The Coolest Moment of the Night
Despite the Chicago Cubs losing Game 3 of the NLDS, there is sure to be at least one Cubs fan that was happy by the end of the game.
It took 13 innings to finally determine a winner in Game 3 of the NLDS featuring the Chicago Cubs and the San Francisco Giants. Down 2-0 in a best-of-five series, the Giants lived to fight another day. Joe Panik's RBI double in the bottom the 13th was the difference as San Fran' won 6-5.
It's impressive that the Giants are now 11-0 when facing elimination, and the game could help build a great back story for who ever advances to the NLCS.
But to me, one of the coolest moments from Game 3 was Jake Arrieta's three-run homerun in the top of the second. At the plate, Arreta, a pitcher no less, was facing Madison Bumgarner. Bumgarner hadn't given up a run in 23-straight post-season innings that he pitched in.
Arreta blasted a three-run dinger ending that streak, and it was caught by the one lone Cubs fan in a see of Giants fans. Watch the video, and you'll see the fan jumping for joy.
Game 4 will be Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. CT in San Francisco. The game will air on Fox Sports 1.
