Ranking my top 10 Chicago Cubs moments from the last 10 years
The last decade has brought some lifelong memories to Chicago Cubs fans.
Since 2010, there have been some great moments with the Chicago Cubs. From defensive plays that made your jaw hit the floor to hits that sent Wrigley into pandemonium. There are so many plays to choose from during this time, but I’m going to do my best to pick a Top 10.
Let’s get started.
Chicago Cubs – #10: Game 1 of the 2016 NLDS
In a pitching duel between Jon Lester and Johnny Cueto, Jon Lester came out victorious. Both pitchers and defenses were in a deep and heavy duel with no mistakes being made on either side. Johnny Cueto made his first mistake of the game in the 8th inning allowing Javier Baez to go yard off of him. Lester didn’t make any mistakes and the game was closed out by Aroldis Chapman.
Chicago Cubs – #9: Hendricks’ 81-pitch shutout vs Cardinals – 2019
This was just an amazing feat to watch. Being able to not have to worry about a team’s bats because of how great your starter pitched is great. With the Cardinals being aggressive early in the count because that is when he normally throws his strikes, every pitch was calculated. But the defense also backed Hendricks up with some great plays allowing him to stay comfortable and keep on putting on a show.
