Ian Happ had the defensive game of his life against the Pirates on Friday afternoon as he had three impressive diving catches during the Cubs 3-1 win.

The final diving catch ended the game and help ensure the Cubs victory as reliever Pedro Strop pumped his fist in excitement over the play. Pirates Josh Harrison looked in disbelief as he was robbed of a RBI and extra-base hits.
