According to ESPN and Elias the Cubs comeback you are thinking of never happened.chadlincoln wrote:He commented on our league home page about the win last night. I mocked the Cardinals as a good Cub fan does. He said that the Cubs have never made a big 9th inning comeback. I remember they did. I think it was in the 1990's when they scored 9 or 10 in the 9th to win. Can someone help me with date/opponent/actual runs scored?
