Wake Up With Randal Grichuk Hitting A Walk-Off Home Run To Beat The Cubs

Don’t look now, but the Cubs have now lost 6 of their last 8 games. Their division lead in the National League Central is down to just five games over the Pittsburgh Pirates, and Monday night’s walk-off victory in the bottom of the ninth brought the Cardinals within six games of first place. Keep in mind, the Cubs had a season high nine-game lead in the division on May 14. Their monstrous run differential, which is an MLB-best +109, hasn’t taken a big hit over their recent rough patch, because of their six losses, four have been by one run, and the other two losses have been by two runs.
