Chicago Cubs closer Pedro Strop had a very eventful Wednesday night, featuring some good and bad news.

Let’s start with the good news! The Cubs came away with an entertaining 7-6 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers at Wrigley Field, and Strop got the save.

Now for the bad news, which Strop actually had to deal with during the game.

Strop’s car was stolen before the game, and he spoke with police about it until the fourth inning. According to ESPN’s Jesse Rogers, Strop told the police, “I might have to pitch. I have to go.”

Oh, and the car was apparently involved in a police chase.

Hopefully Strop can get his car back, but at least he was able to keep his focus and lock down a nice win for the Cubs (who are now 12-10, and 7-1 over their last eight games).
