With the bases loaded for the Cubs in the bottom of the 10th inning Monday night, Arismendy Alcantara smacked a walk-off base hit that broke a 6-6 tie and gave Chicago a win over the Cincinnati Reds.

It was Alcantara's first walk-off hit of his career, as well as his first hit of the season. He had gone 0 for his first 16 at bats of the year, according to ESPN Stats & Info. 

Is it too early for Cubs fans to start celebrating the team's first-place standing in the NL Central? The team is two games over .500 for the first time since 2009
