The legend grows for David Bote.

The Cubs third baseman hit a walk-off grand slam on his final strike to give the Cubs a 4-3 win on Sunday night.

The 25-year old smacked the ball on the roof in dead center field. It was the first walk-off grand slam down to the last strike for the Cubs since Ellie Burton in 1963. He was the first MLB player to hit a walk-off homer with his team down to his last strike and down three runs since Alan Trammell in 1988.

This is the first time that the Cubs have had multiple walk-off grand slams (Heyward) in one since 1980. It was the second pinch-hit grand slam in the majors this season.

"I got a good pitch to hit it and I hit it," Bote told SportsCenter.
