Cubs’ Seiya Suzuki makes a horrible mistake and hits a game-tying Grand Slam in the same inning

Baseball is a great game, it is said, because no matter how badly you mess up, you have the opportunity to come back the next day and redeem yourself.

Sometimes you don’t even have to wait a day.

Take the example of Chicago Cubs right fielder Seiya Suzuki, who manned his familiar position Saturday night against the Cincinnati Reds at Wrigley Field. With the bases loaded and two outs in the top of the second inning, Reds catcher Luke Maile hit a routine fly to right – only for Suzuki to drop it.

Three runs were scored and Cincinnati ended the inning with a 4-0 lead.

Fast forward to the bottom of the second. Same situation: bases loaded, two outs, and this time Suzuki at the dish.

A 120-yard grand slam later had the match tied at four.

The redemption bomb marked the sixth of the year for Suzuki, who is looking to build on a second 20-home run season in 2023.
