Logan Schafer Scores Little League Home Run Thanks to Cubs' Multiple Errors

The Chicago Cubs walked into a buzz saw against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday. 

The Brewers cranked out a 6-1 spanking of the Cubbies—a five-run deficit that could've been cut down if not for a comedy of errors and casual defense on the part of Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo.

Brewers outfielder Logan Schafer hit a routine bouncer to short that was fielded by Castro. The shortstop had an easy out in his crosshairs but botched the throw to Rizzo at first. Assuming Schafer would run cautiously, Rizzo took his time gathering the ball and panicked when the baserunner turned for third.

Rizzo overthrew the ball, and Schafer ended up making it to the dish for a "Little League" home run.
