Chicago Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward had one of his most memorable moments as a professional on Wednesday night with a walk-off grand slam in the 7-5 win against the Phillies.

It was his first career walk-off homer and the first Cubs walk-off grand slam since Alfonso Soriano against the Astros on July 27, 2009 according to ESPN Stats & Info. Heyward with the bases loaded this season is 4-for-9 with a homer and 14 RBIs.

The last Cubs player to hit a grand slam when the team was trailing was Ron Santo against the Dodgers in 1968.

Check out some fan reactions to the play at Wrigley Field and some photos of his teammates being excited for the hero of the night. The Cubs pull within only one game of the Brewers in the National League Central.
