These Chicago Cubs are different.
Ever since winning the 1908 World Series, the Cubs have found countless ways to leave their fans heartbroken, and it appeared they were in for more of the same Saturday night when the Los Angeles Dodgers tied Game 1 of the National League Championship Series in the top of the eighth inning.
But, like we said, these Cubs aren’t your father’s or grandfather’s Cubs.
Chicago came right back in the bottom of the eighth and took the lead for good with back-to-back home runs en route to an 8-4 victory over L.A. at Wrigley Field.
The first of those homers was a grand slam, courtesy of pinch-hitter Miguel Montero.
Dexter Fowler followed that up for good measure with a homer of his own.
No heartbreak at Wrigley this time.
