VIDEO: Tony Kemp Mashes 2-Run Blast as Cubs Retake the Lead vs Cards in Wild Back-and-Forth Game

Tony Kemp? Yes, THAT Tony Kemp, has given the Cubs the lead in the bottom of the seventh, in a game which is as close to a must-win at this portion of the season as it gets in the Windy City. The Cubs have lost the first two games to their division rivals, and Saturday's matchup is likely giving fans a heart attack with the lead continuously changing hands. Kemp provided the latest chapter.

Yes, this came after Kemp was forced back into the box due to a balk. Later in the at-bat, the former Astro launched a 2-run bomb to give the Cubs the lead...although based on this game who knows how long they'll hang onto it.
