Video: Billy Hamilton's broken bat single sends crowd home happy with walk-off

Tuesday was a lot of fun for Billy Hamilton and the Reds as they beat the Cubs not once but twice in the day-night doubleheader.

However, the outlook for winning the nightcap appeared grim when Chicago jumped out to a 5-0 lead. Well, that was until the Reds scored in every inning after the fourth to come-from-behind for a 6-5 victory, completed by the heroics of Billy Hamilton.

The Rookie of the Year favorite stepped to the plate in the bottom of the ninth with a chance to be the hero. And he wasted no time in doing so by delivering a broken bat single down the left field line to give Bryan Price's crew the walk-off win.
