Depends on how you look at it.

O'Leary hit .218 for the Cubs in 2003 which was the end of his career.

However, he was 2-4 and scored the winning run in this game.

Even listening to Chip Caray makes me want baseball to get going again.

We may not have baseball, but at least PlayTwo is in midseason form.

Troy O'Leary hit a home run in his last at-bat in the 2003 playoffs, IIRC.  He might have wanted to go out on a high note rather than play another year, though after that Game 6 you'd think he'd want to go out on a better *team* note.

Anthony Rizzo also homered. 

The game was tied 3-3 going into the ninth but Brandon Morrow gave up two runs.   


                                                             
The winning pitcher?  None other than Cory Mazzoni.

I was at that game with my son and we left early because it was a school night.  The grand slam landed about 10 feet from where we were sitting. I was walking my dog right after we got home and heard the explosion from Wrigley when he walked it off. It was pretty cool.
