Retired Police Officer Catches Justin Turner's Walkoff Homer

Retired Police Officer Catches Justin Turner's Walkoff Homer”

And yet, in 2017, they have a dwindling impact on the outcome. At one point, Lackey went 2 minutes and 12 seconds between pitches to Taylor.

Let's be real. The Chicago Cubs bullpen hasn't been good in the playoffs.

The moves by Roberts and Maddon were textbook in the postseason.

After Addison Russell gave the Cubs a 1-0 lead with a solo home run in the fifth, Turner was able to come up with a big hit to tie the game in the bottom half of the inning. The Dodgers bullpen took care of business from there as they shut down the Cubs. It will be hard to envision the Cubs coming all the way back with Clayton Kershaw still in the Dodgers pocket.

29 years ago from the date of October 15, Kirk Gibson hit a walk off homer for the Dodgers and they won the World Series that year. After he caught it, Hupp gave it to a security guard immediately and was escorted underneath the stadium to actually meet Turner and work out a trade.

Both team's starting pitchers didn't last long in the game. But his mere presence allowed Maddon to avoid the Cubs' soft underbelly. Hendricks compiled a 7-5 record with a 3.03 ERA, 3.88 FIP, 1.19 WHIP, 7.9 K/9, 0.33:1 BB:K ratio, and 1.10 HR/9 rate. Edwards, a key setup man all season for Davis, had walked the past three men he had faced over two appearances. Between series, the Cubs chose to add former closer Hector Rondon to the roster - and he allowed a homer on the second pitch he threw in Game 1.

"We have more than an adequate team; we just need to take it game by game", said Miranda.

So, too, is handling the Dodger relievers. David Ortiz hit one in extra innings in Game 4 in '04 against the Yankees, on the night when the Red Sox officially began the greatest comeback in baseball history. The Cubs are only guaranteed two games at Wrigley Field, so they better figure out a way to get the bats going. At any rate, the Cubs offense has yet to show up, scoring three runs in two games.

Gibson, who wasn't supposed to play that night because of a ruined knee, who never played another moment in that Series, hit his shot off Eckersley when Eckersley was the best relief pitcher on the planet, and one of the best of all time, and only got his at-bat because Eckersley had somehow managed to walk Mike Davis. He had the help of a tough curveball to get the game started. Justin Turner hit an RBI single for the Dodgers in the fifth inning.

Los Angeles turned first to right-hander Brandon Morrow, and when he was done with his night, the Cubs' had to be further demoralized.

Dodgers pitching certainly did its part in earning the win.

Unlike the Cubs, Dave Roberts put in his closer Kenley Jansen, in the ninth despite no save opportunity.

The fan's name is Keith Hupp, and the retired police officer (and lifelong Dodgers fan) was at the game with his son when the fateful moment happened. He walked 2 batters and struck out a batter. But the Cubs have to find an answer at the plate if they hope to come back in this series. Jansen blew away Bryant, but then slipped a bit - hitting Rizzo with a pitch.
