CHICAGO — Following the solo shot from Chicago Cubs center fielder Ian Happ on Wednesday, the Cubs' bullpen upped the ante with its post-homer celebration. Happ put the Cubs up 1-0 over the Miami Marlins in Game 1 of the Wild Card Series.

Happ's 360-footer at Wrigley Field gave way to a musical celebration by the Cubs' relief pitchers. Air guitar was a fixture of the hoedown, which featured plastic instruments straight from the toy aisle of a department store. Hopping around in celebration of the Cubs taking the lead, the bullpen "band" took its post-homer dancing to the next level.
