Chicago Cubs reliever David Robertson had a memorable moment during Wednesday's night blowout win against the Pirates.

Robertson had the first career at-bat of his career during the ninth inning of the ball game. He had waited 695 career games to get an at-bat which is fourth most of anyone in history.

“I don’t know if I’ll ever get another opportunity, so I’m glad I did and made my dream come true,” Robertson said to the media following the game. “Even though I struck out.”
