Reed Johnson's home run
Puts the Cubs into first place
For the time being 
That's two games in a row that the Cubs have won on walk offs. If they're not careful those empty seats might actually be filled with Cubs fans pretty soon.  
In the first game of Wednesday's day-night doubleheader, Jeff Samardzija worked out of a bases loaded jam in the top of the 11th and got the win when Reed Johnson hit a home run into the left field bleachers to lead off the Cubs half of the inning. 
The win puts the Cubs into a tie with the Reds for first place in the NL Central.  Don't believe it?  Here's the proof:

Of course, there are no guarantees that it will look the same in the morning.
