If failure is success in Silicon Valley, then Madison Bumgarner is a champion tonight. The Giants ace, last seen choking the life out of the Mets, is laying an egg in an must-win against the Cubs. He came into the game with a streak of 23 straight scoreless innings in elimination games, but managed to give up a three-run donger to Jake Arrieta, of all people, in the second inning.

Crueler still, a Cubs fan caught it. The Cubs loved it, of course.

Chicago became the first team to have two different pitchers hit home runs since 1924, per the broadcast crew.
