Omar Gallardo’s dusty slide into home plate triggered a swarm of blue and red onto the field Saturday.
Gallardo’s was the winning run in the Cubs’ 6-5 walk-off triumph over the Marlins in La Plaza’s minors division championship game.
It was fitting that Gallardo put an end to the game. He finished 4 for 4 at the plate with three runs scored.
Solid in the middle of their order, the Marlins got three hits apiece from the one-town punch of Jared and Jaden.
But it was the Cubbies who came up with a trump card in the final at-bat.
