Watch: Cubs' Chris Coghlan Doesn't Get Time As Requested, Crazily Drills Tying Hit

(CBS) Cubs outfielder Chris Coghlan just wanted a quick timeout during a key at-bat in the sixth inning against the rival Cardinals at Wrigley Field on Thursday night.

He didn't get it. No worries, though -- instead, Coghlan made the most of a wild sequence, hurriedly drilling a game-tying two-run single to right field with barely any time to react to Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez's delivery.

Cubs catcher David Ross followed with a go-ahead bunt to give the Cubs a 3-2 lead, and they'd eventually win 4-3 in 11 innings on Anthony Rizzo's walk-off walk.

Perhaps none of that would've been possible without Coghlan's quick reaction. Check it out.
