Miguel Montero with a pinch-ht grand slam in NLCS Game 1
Montero came up as a pinch hitter in the bottom of the eighth inning with the bases loaded and the game tied at 3-3. He connected with a slider and the ball went into the stands for a grand slam. It was only the third time in post-season history that a player hit a pinch-hit grand slam.
Montero has seen his playing time reduced this season and he also has struggled mightily at the plate but this was a heck of a time to get the ball onto the bat with power.

Montero reached base in the ninth inning and score the final run for the Cubs which seemed inconsequential when it made the score 6-1 but after Pittsburgh scored three and had two in scoring position, it loomed larger. The Cubs would escape the situation to win 6-4.
Not a great fantasy season for Montero but Cubs fans appreciate him, as he is part of the system that is making Contreras and Schwarber better for the future.

Montero had a heck of a game Wednesday. He would get a hit that drove in the eventual game-winning run in the third inning. Montero would score a run on a balk in the fifth inning. He would then drive in two more runs in the sixth.
Montero has had his moments this season, but he lost playing time after Willson Contreras was called up. He has struggled when he played as well as he is currently batting .220.
Miguel Montero wins game Friday on walk-off HR versus Milwaukee
Montero came into the game off the bench, but he stepped up in the bottom of the 10th and won the game with a walk-off HR.
After not doing much in fantasy this season, he has recently performed better. He could be a bargain-bin option at catcher in DFS if you pay attention to the lineup cards and see he is starting.
