Christopher Morel launches Cubs' 1st grand slam of season

NBC Universal, Inc.

Trying to bounce back after a historic loss Monday night to the San Diego Padres, the Chicago Cubs stumbled onto a golden opportunity to break the game open Tuesday evening with a one-run lead, the bases loaded and no one out in the fifth inning.

Enter, Christopher Morel.

The titanic blast was not only the Cubs' first grand slam of 2024, but also the first grand slam of Christopher Morel's career.

The blast followed a solo shot from Yan Gomes that propelled the Cubs to a 5-0 lead in the fifth inning.

The North Siders will attempt to hang on and even up the series in Southern California, with the third and final game of the season scheduled to begin at 5:40 p.m. local time Wednesday.
