Despite the Cubs’ 6-3 loss on Monday in Milwaukee, one positive to take away was the clean inning and a third from former prospect Justin Steele.
Steele relieved Chafin and made the most of his opportunity.
A game many Cubs fans will likely forget in the next week will be one Steele will remember for the rest of his life.
Steele pitched an inning and a third in which he struck out two batters, walked one, and allowed one hit. The lefty reliever has been part of the Cubs organization since 2014.
Based on his performance, it appears as though the moment wasn’t too big for Steele. He shared an Instagram post with a heartfelt message after the game expressing gratitude and excitement regarding his MLB debut.
