Jacob Hannemann has been flashing the leather recently, tonight might have been the best of the bunch.
Loud noises! With the Cubs trailing 2-1 in the 8th, Kris Bryant absolutely crushed a 3-2 pitch off the video board in left field. That had to be the farthest home run of the season, it was bound to happen, and man that was fun.
Javier Baez is on a roll right now, he hit two home runs yesterday and has his average North of .320 for the Iowa Cubs. Here is video of his second dinger, he’s also taking more pitches, earning walks, the improvement is real.
Dinger number 10 for Kyle Schwarber tonight, and it was pretty, so pretty.
Kris Bryant got the Cubs on the board early in this one as he destroyed a hanging curveball way out of Petco Park in the first. Such an effortless display of power, wow.
Another monster shot from Kyle Schwarber, and IT MAKES ME SO EXCITED!! Just enjoy yourself.
“Un-freaking-believable” … sounds about right. If you missed the Cubs game this afternoon then you missed an instant classic. Huge leads by the Cubs evaporated, Gregory Polanco forget how to stand up straight, it was madness. If you haven’t seen the video yet I’ve included it below, said video has both home and away reaction, just wow.
Anthony Rizzo took a 2-0 fastball and beat the living crap out of it, that’s what you do with a 2-0 fastball. The Cubs have extended their lead to 7-1 against the Pirates as the game moves to the sixth inning.
