Getting caught in a pickle can be one of the more exciting plays in baseball. While many end fairly quickly, the longer they go on, the more room for both error and excitement there.

However, if you add in the possibility of a pickle turning into a walk-off win, well that can create one of the most exciting plays in baseball. And that's exactly what happened during the Cubs-Rockies game following a Joe Girardi single.

It was such a great recovery by the runner rounding third to keep the Rockies distracted enough to screw up on the pickle between first and second, and even more impressive to beat out the throw home once he fully committed.

End of the day, the fans get one of the craziest endings ever and the Cubs get a walk-off win.
