Cubs backup catcher Miguel Montero hit a grand slam in the bottom of the eighth inning to put the Cubs up 7-3 against the Dodgers.

It was Montero's first postseason home run in 60 plate appearances and becomes the second player in Cubs postseason history with a pinch-hit go-ahead RBI, joining ESPN analyst Doug Glanville.

It was also only the second grand slam by the Cubs in postseason besides Aramis Ramirez in 2003. Montero had a much-deserved curtain call by the fans at Wrigley Field.

"He threw a good slider...I mean, it was a good slider for me, not for him," Montero said during postgame interviews.

"I thought the roof was coming down," Javier Baez said to reporters about Montero's homer.

Dexter Fowler followed up Montero's grand slam with a solo shot to put the Cubs up 8-3.




Obviously, the Wrigley Field fans went bonkers.
