Video: The Cubs Just Had Another Steve Bartman Moment

cubs steve bartman incident tonight vs. the pirates

It's been almost 15 years since Steve Bartman disrupted an NLCS game between the Cubs and the Marlins, getting in the way of Moisés Alou catching a ball in a game - and series - ultimately won by, well, not the Cubs.

We had a Steve Bartman 2.0 situation happen at Wrigley Field tonight. Of course, it was in a much-less high-stakes situation, but it still could prove to be costly.

FOX Sports MLB has the details:

"Anthony Rizzo attempted to catch this foul ball to give the Cubs 2 outs in the 9th. It wasn't caught. Two hits later, the Pirates have now tied the Cubs 6-6."

Here's replay of the play:

The Cubs and the Pirates are now tied, 6-6, in the bottom of the 9th inning.

This could prove to be a really costly loss for Chicago, which would fall 0.5 games behind the Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central with a defeat tonight. Hopefully for this fan's sake, that does not happen.

Stay tuned.
