39-year-old Cubs catcher hit a humongous home run in Game 7 -- his final game -- one inning after his costly error

The World Series is on the line in Game 7. It is also the final game in the career of Cubs catcher David Ross and he has made it a memorable one.

Ross came into the game in the fifth inning with the Cubs up 5-1 and seemingly in control of the game. But with Jon Lester coming in to reliever Kyle Hendricks, disaster struck and it looked like Ross’ final game could be a nightmare.

On a dribbler in front of the plate with a runner on base, Ross picked up the ball and threw wild to first base, putting runners on second and third. Then, Ross’ legs got tangled up on a wild pitch and both runners scored, cutting the lead to 5-3.

But in the very next inning, Ross redeemed himself, hitting a home run off of the Indians’ star relief pitcher, Andrew Miller. Much like Dexter Fowler’s home run to lead off the game, Rajai Davis just missed robbing the home run.

The Cubs dugout went crazy as the lead got stretched back out to three runs.

Miller was devastated.
