Twitter reacts to Chicago Cubs’ crazy eighth inning

The Chicago Cubs had a crazy bottom of the eighth inning of Game 1 of the NLCS against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Here is how Twitter exploded because of it.

The Chicago Cubs had one of the most insane frames in a postseason game in recent memory. Chicago was tied 3-3 entering the bottom of the eighth inning in Game 1 of the 2016 National League Championship Series. The Cubs were leading 3-1 at the top of the eighth inning.

Then something remarkable happened. Catcher Miguel Montero hit a pinch-hit grand slam to make it 7-3 Cubs. The next batter was center fielder Dexter Fowler. He already made a crazy catch that saw him break his belt in the fourth inning. He goes back-to-back with Montero to put Chicago up 8-3. The Cubs would go on to win Game 1 of the NLCS, 8-4.

With Chicago having not won a World Series since 1908 or making it to one since 1945, here is how Twitter handle all the madness from the bottom of the eighth inning in Game 1.

The Cubs only need to win seven more games before winning their first World Series Championship in a century. It was a great day for baseball fans on the North Side of the Windy City.

Los Angeles clearly has some work to do. Can the Cubs keep this up for the rest of the series and beyond?
