Bryan Holaday hit a game-tying RBI single in the eighth inning of Saturday's 10-inning loss to the Cubs.
While the Cubs came away with the win, here, the Marlins did not make it easy. On multiple occasions they came back on deficits, most notably with Holaday's little bit of magic in the eighth inning. His RBI single off Pedro Strop in the frame knotted the score up at 6-6 and ended up sending the game to extras before the Cubs reasserted their dominance with a four-run 10th inning. Consider it a nice moment in the sun for Holaday, who was only called up at the end of March to provide depth at catcher while J.T. Realmuto mends up from a bone bruise in his back. There is no fantasy intrigue with the backstop. Mar 31 - 11:30 PM
