Chris Coghlan tried to call time, but was forced to hit a game-tying two-run single instead
There was just one problem: Coghlan did not receive the time he sought. Would he simply stand there, possibly letting strike three sail by? Would he flail awkwardly at the ball, unable to recover in time? Nah, he smoked a single to right field:
Coghlan's base hit drove in the tying runs, and the Cubs would eventually win the game, 4-3, in 11 innings. Which makes us wonder: Was this his plan all along? Was he simply hustling us, baiting Martinez into letting his guard down? Stay woke, people.
