The Chicago Cubs hosted game three in their World Series battle against the Cleveland Indians on Friday night. The series coming to Chicago’s iconic Wrigley Field for the first time since 1945 was one of the most anticipated events in the Windy City in the past seven decades.

Sadly (for Cubs fans), the night ended with the Indians beating the home team 1-0, taking a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

The bright spot in the night happened during the seventh-inning stretch when Chicago native Bill Murray was tapped by the Cubs to lead the sing-a-long of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”

A very animated Murray channeled his inner “Daffy Duck” for the performance, encouraging the crowd to “spray it” as they sang.

Watch:

The SNL alum is no stranger to singing at Wrigley. In April 2004, Murray delivered another inspired performance at the Cubs’ home opener.
