Pedro Strop was involved in a grand theft auto moment before Wednesday's Cubs game

Pedro Strop had himself quite the day.

It seemed like Strop was going to get Wednesday night off, as the Cubs led the Dodgers 7-3 in the eighth inning. However, after Steve Cishek surrendered a three-run home run to Alex Verdugo, the team was forced to call upon Strop to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning.

Strop slammed the door on the Dodgers, but as it turns out, picking up a save in an MLB game was not the most stressful moment of his day. According to ESPN's Jesse Rogers, Strop's car was stolen before Wednesday night's game, which he was dealing with until the fourth inning.

The story gets crazier, though. According to Rogers, Strop's car was involved in a police chase and he was dealing with the situation even after Wednesday's game ended. 

Talk about your not so average Wednesday.
