  • June 23 - At Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs and rival St. Louis Cardinals locked up in a tight game. In the bottom of the ninth inning, trailing 9-8, Ryne Sandberg hit a solo-home run off of Bruce Sutter. The Cardinals regained the lead in the tenth inning 11-9, but Sandberg hit another home run off Sutter in the bottom of the frame, this time with one runner on base and two outs. The Cubs went on to win the game 12-11 in the following inning, and eventually won the National League East. Sandberg won the MVP Award this season, with this game as a key contribution.
