Michael Chavis of the Pirates defeated the Cubs almost singlehandedly on Thursday.
He homered to center field leading off the eighth inning, tying the score at 7, then blooped a single to right in the 10th that drove home the Manfred Man from second, winning the game.
From the start of 1915, first season for which baseball-reference.com has play-by-play data, the Cubs have hit 1,369 game-tying home runs.
They have had 758 walk-off plays.
Only 15 times has the same player hit a tying homer and made a game-ending hit in the same game.
None of those times did a Cub do exactly what Chavis did: even the score with a homer in the eighth, then win the game in the 10th.
13 different Cubs have tied a game with a homer, then delivered a walk-off hit. Gabby Hartnett and Ron Santo both did it twice.
Seven of the tying homers came in the first 7 innings.
TYING HOMERS IN EIGHTH
Five came in the 8th hit by Frank Schulte (Sept. 29, 1915), Hartnett (April 20, 1923), Earl Webb (Aug. 1, 1927), Barry Foote (April 22, 1980) and Corey Patterson (Sept. 14, 2004).
Schulte's was a 2-run shot against the Reds that made the score 3-3. After Cincinnati regained the lead in the top of the ninth, pinch hitter Wilbur Good homered to start the bottom, pulling the Cubs even again.
An error, a bunt and a groundout put a runner on third and brought up Schulte, who lined a hit over the leaping second baseman to secure the victory.
Webb led off the eighth with a homer, moments after the Phillies had scored 5 runs to go in front, 5-4.
His game-winning single in the ninth came with 1 out and runners at first and second.
Hartnett and Foote both hit another homer in the ninth inning for their walk-offs.
Hartnett's first was with 2 on, tying the Pirates 9. His second was a solo that broke a tie at 11.
Foote's first, with the bases empty, tied the Cardinals at 12. His second was a grand slam that produced a 16-12 win.
Patterson provided all the Cubs' offense against the Pirates, homering with a man on in the eighth to make the score 2-2, then delivering a solo shot in the 12th.
TYING HOMERS IN NINTH
On Aug. 5, 1968, Ron Santo tied the Giants at 2 when he homered leading off the ninth.
