The Cubs-Mariners game on Sunday night at Wrigley Field was one of the craziest baseball games we will see in the 2016 MLB season (or ever, really).

It had a pitcher playing left field and making great plays (before then coming back in to pitch), it had 12 innings, it had a comeback from a six-run deficit, it had a wild pitch tying the game with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, and it had a squeeze bunt with two strikes from a pinch-hitting pitcher to win the game in walk-off fashion.

Here’s the walk-off bunt, which came from Jon Lester to bring in Jason Heyward and give the Cubs a wacky 7-6 win:

The Mariners led this game 6-0 after three innings, and it looked like they had the game all the way… until the Cubs scored three in the bottom of the ninth to tie it. Chicago’s bullpen threw nine shutout innings to bail out a rough Cubs debut from starting pitcher Brian Matusz, who allowed six earned runs in three innings pitched.
