Francisco Cervelli was 3-for-6 with four RBI in Friday's extra-innings loss to the Cubs.

If you saw Cervelli cashing in four RBI at any point this season, get thee to a lottery ticket. He came into the game with four driven in for the entire season and left with the total doubled. Three of those RBI came via a bases clearing double in the sixth inning, but it was Cervelli's game-tying, ninth-inning RBI single off of Hector Rondon with two outs that proved to be one of the most dramatic hits in a game that saw the Cubs blow a 7-1 fifth-inning lead before they ultimately came back to win it in the bottom of the 12th.
