WATCH: Cubs rob game-tying homer to end Cardinals playoff chances

by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Cubs backup outfielder Leonys Martin had an incredible robbery of a potential game-tying homer by Paul DeJong in the 11th inning in the Cubs 2-1 victory.

The Cubs dugout went crazy while the Cardinals players looked stunned by the turn of events. The marvelous catch ended the Cardinals slim chances of making it as a wild card team.

"He CAUGHT IT!!" Cubs announcer Len Kasper screamed. "He CAUGHT IT!! Cubs win."

What a crazy series as the Cubs took three out of four games at Busch Stadium and what a memorable season so far for the North Siders. The Cubs have now won 13 of their last 16 games.
