Kerry Wood HR in Game 7 of 2003 NLCS

July 30, 2020



It might be one of the greatest home runs in Cubs history. It’s just a shame it meant nothing in the end. But at the time, Kerry Wood’s game-tying, two-run homer off Mark Redman in the second inning meant everything. Wood had put the Cubs in a 3-0 hole after one inning. Then, with two outs, a run in and a man on in the second, Wood worked the count full before blasting a pitch into the left-field bleachers. Moises Alou homered in the third to give the Cubs a 5-3 lead they eventually blew. But Wood’s homer was special. Thom Brennaman said it was the first homer by a pitcher in an LCS since the Cubs’ Rick Sutcliffe in 1984. Plus, it woke up the crowd (listen to the reaction on multiple replays) and put the Cubs back in the game. I’ll post the game in its entirety. Here’s the box score from Baseball Reference:

  • I know that the Cubs almost never retire a jersey that isn't a HoF'mer (they made an exception with Santo prior to being inducted into the hall) but Kerry seriously deserves it. There are very few Cubs players that gave us such great memories as Kid K. The 20 K game. The complete domination of the Braves in the NLDS to lead the Cubs to their first playoff series victory in 95 years. This home run right here. And no only that, but he was and is a true role model, a true model citizen, a man who never cheated in a game of cheaters. A man who bleeds Cubbie Blue to this today. Whenever there is a Cubs gather and Kerry is announced the crowd goes ballistic and they always shout "Kerry Kerry Kerry'. He was just…. special. A specimen that we will never see again. Retire #34 Mr. Rickets. There will never, ever, ever be another.

  • Cubs won the Pennant in 2016 at home in Wrigley but this HAS to be the loudest single moment in Wrigley Field history.

  • This was the peak of that era since the 94 strike in my opinion….baseball was at its most exciting….even though everything going on outside the game was a mess(hell it always is) the game itself was at an all time high to me back to back years 03 and 04 you had instant classic championships in the NL and AL plus the 01 and 02 WS? What a time
