Story sneaks a single between Bryant and Baez with 2 outs in the 13th. 15% hit probability on that ball--really bad luck for the Cubs.

Bryant hasn't looked great on defense at third since coming back, by the way. Seems like his range is really limited.

Now Parra singles. First and third, 2 outs.

Tony Wolters hitting, .577 OPS this year. Seems like a guy who would get the game winning hit.

The announcers were talking about the Story hit like it was no big deal.  That could end up being the winning run.

Wolters falls behind 0-2, then gets a 1-2 hit. Brutal way to lose.

Yes they have. It's over. This terrible offense isn't scoring another run.

Your 2018 Chicago Cubs, folks. Beaten by Tony Somebody, a .170 hitter.

But Mendoza claimed that Story hit was a great win for the Cubs, so I don't get it.

If De La Rosa was ready, why didn’t he face Wolters?

Probably because it's Tony Wolters.

Tony Wolters first hit since September 10 according to ESPN.

Terrance Gore gets one of the last 3 ABs of the Cubs season.

Shouldn't Gore be bunting every time he hits?
