Alex Avila hit a walkoff two-run single in the bottom of the 10th inning as the Cubs defeated the Blue Jays 6-5 on Sunday at Wrigley Field.
Toronto took a two-run lead in the top of the 10th, but closer Roberto Osuna couldn't make it stick -- and Blue Jays catcher Rafael Lopez didn't help the cause. Avila came off the bench in this one, drawing a walk in his first plate appearance before playing the role of hero in his second. The 30-year-old catcher has 10 RBI in 12 games since joining the defending World Series champions. Aug 20 - 6:12 PM
