Rookie David Bote hit a walk off grand slam to beat the Nationals 4-3 in dramatic fashion. Bote has been a find for the Cubs as a 25 year old rookie, getting extra playing time with the injury to Kris Bryant. He has not been "afraid" since coming up, according to his manager. He showed that again tonight.
