Mlb Roundup Cubs Ph Bote Hits Walk-off Slam


David Bote slugged a pinch-hit, walk-off grand slam with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Chicago Cubs a dramatic 4-3 victory over the Washington Nationals on Sunday night at Wrigley Field.

Bote hammered a low 2-2 fastball from Washington right-hander Ryan Madson (2-5) well over the fence in center field to turn an apparent shutout loss into a memorable victory.

The stunning turnaround boosted Chicago’s lead in the National League Central to three games over the second-place Milwaukee Brewers.
