Ranking my top 10 Chicago Cubs moments from the last 10 years
Chicago Cubs – #8: Bote’s Ultimate Grand Slam Walk-Off -2018
After being shut down all game by Max Scherzer, Ryan Madson came in to close out the game and struggled. David Bote came up to the plate with two outs and two strikes and bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth (dream scenario if you ask me). He connected with one and sent it into the bleachers for one of the most memorable home runs in Cubs history.
Chicago Cubs – #7: Arrieta’s First No-Hitter – 2015
In the season that finally gave us all hope again, Arrieta was the star of the show. Not only did it show everyone his talent with the game being nationally televised He also showed his talent by no-hitting one of the best National League teams in 2015. He ended the game with 12 strikeouts and 116 pitches. His historic season eventually led him to earn NL Cy Young Award Honors.
Chicago Cubs – #6: Game 5 of the 2017 NLDS
Going into the sixth inning the Chicago Cubs had an 8-4 lead over the Washington Nationals. In a back-and-forth series between two great teams only one could prevail. Washington started to come back and turned the four-run lead into a one-run lead. Wade Davis came into the game to try and keep the Cubs’ season alive. He pitched 2 1/3 innings, ending the game with a strikeout of Bryce Harper.
