What served as Baez's 103rd RBI of the season also served as the winning hit, with Baez motoring down the baseline for a single as part of a safety squeeze. Bryant scored with ease on the play, as the Nationals were seemingly caught off the guard. The deep bunt, which nearly reached the dirt between first and second base through the air, was not fielded cleanly, paving the way for the Cubs to top the Nationals 4-3 in extra innings.
