Rajai Davis, at 36 years of age, with only 12 home runs during the regular season, was a great matchup for Aroldis Chapman. There were two outs in the game, in the eighth inning, with the Cubs nursing a 6-4 lead. The lead seemed safe.
Except it wasn’t.
Chapman, with two strikes, tried to come inside on Davis, and the veteran was expecting it. He crushed the pitch into the stands and tied the game.
That home run helped the Indians come back from a 5-1 deficit and sent the game into extra innings.
