Davis came on in the 7th, looking to give manager Joe Maddon a seven-out save. He was successful, K'ing Harper to end the wild 9-8 affair. So concluded the longest nine-inning postseason game ever (4:37).
The motto of this year's MLB Playoffs: Take '17. Every team is talented and deep; there's no telling who could walk away with the 2017 championship. Here, we look back on the Chicago/Washington NLDS.
Neither team mustered much offense in Game 1 until the 6th, when Cub Javier Baez's grounder down the 3B line was misplayed by Nats' 3B Anthony Rendon. Baez soon scored on a Kris Bryant single, all the O Chicago would need.
