Wisdom’s go-ahead blast keys sweep as North Siders ‘give back some of the love’ to fans

CHICAGO — It hit Patrick Wisdom as he was trotting around the bases on Sunday afternoon. As he heard the Wrigley Field crowd roar and saw his teammates in the third-base dugout celebrating, the Cubs’ slugger felt the importance of the homer he just sent deep into the left-field bleachers.

Here are some words of (Patrick) Wisdom - Bleed Cubbie Blue

“That was a big one,” Wisdom said. “Hearing Wrigley erupt and seeing the dugout when you’re rounding second explode is really cool. It’s a hard feeling to replicate.”

The Cubs are hoping to replicate such moments back home in October.

Wisdom’s go-ahead two-run blast in the sixth inning propelled Chicago to a 4-3 victory over Colorado, putting the final touch on a three-game sweep and keeping the North Siders in the third National League Wild Card spot. If the Cubs play at the Friendly Confines again in 2023, it will likely be in an NL Division Series.
