Nail in the coffin for the division-rival Cardinals

Of course, winning it all last year is the all-time high for Chicago Cubs fans worldwide.

But, prior to that, knocking out the division-rival St. Louis Cardinals ranks pretty high on most peoples’ lists – including mine. After years upon years of chasing the Cards in the National League Central, 2015 represented the first time the roles were switched.

With the Cubs leading 5-4, Schwarber absolutely destroyed the 1-1 pitch, depositing it onto the first-year, right field video board. At the time, the broadcast team thought he departed it onto the streets – but , as we all know now, it has a permanent home atop the board.

The Chicago Cubs’ offense slowed to a crawl in the National League Championship Series against the New York Mets. But during that showdown with St. Louis, everything fired on all cylinders.
