Mike Montgomery collects his first MLB save in Game 7 of the World Series as Cubs win the World Series for the first time in 108 years.

Cubs 2016 manager, Joe Maddon showed a lot of confidance in Montgomery in the Cubs 2016 postseason run.  He pitched in 5 of the 7 World Series games, giving up just one run and 4 hits.  Overall, he pitched 11 postseason innings, had one victory, one loss, one save
and a 3.14 ERA.
