Hey hey! The Cubs came back to beat the Bucs 6-5 in extras on Thursday night behind a run-scoring, walk-off Pittsburg error. Ian Happ and Rafael Ortega both went deep for the Cubs, and Adrian Sampson threw 3.1 innings of nice relief (0 H, 0 ER, 4 K). The winning run scored on a fluke play as Wilmer Difo misplayed Happ's pop fly.

Sergio Alcantara reached in four of five plate appearances, going 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored.

The series continues Friday in Pittsburgh.

Go Cubs go!
