Dingerpalooza! (VIDEO)

The Cubs barely hung on tonight in Milwaukee, and they did it with the long ball.  FOUR DINGERS!!  Anthony Rizzo, Dexter Fowler, Starlin Castro, and Jorge Soler all left the yard with authority tonight, loud noises for sure.  I’ll add them as they become available from MLB.

Cubs Final 4-13 Full Box Score

How about those Cubs?  I’m not going to lie, I’m excited, sure it’s only April, I don’t care, first place.  Jon Lester was off again tonight, but the bullpen picked him up and gave the club a chance to comeback.  That’s exactly what the Cubs did, they came back from two separate three run deficits to win 7-6 thanks for a walk-off single by Arismendy Alcantara.  The game doesn’t get there without Jorge Soler who jacked a pair of two-run homers, what a thrilling night.

At the Plate:

  • Anthony Rizzo was locked in tonight, he was 2-for-3 with two walks, and two runs scored.
  • Jorge Soler was outstanding tonight, he went 3-for-5 with two dingers, four RBI’s, and three runs scored.  He also had a tasty outfield assist.
  • Chris Coghlan continued his torrid start to the season, he went 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk, an RBI, and two runs scored.

On the Mound:

Alcantara wins it!

Soler with an unreal throw.

LOUD NOISES!!  Soler destroys his second home run of the game to tie things at six.  The Cubs have come back from two different three run deficits, and are about to walk off, I hope.

Another Day, Another Soler Dinger (VIDEO)

Soler Dinger

Just look at that extension from the big man. Soler went deep again this afternoon in the Cubs victory over the Brewers, I could watch him swing a bat all day. The ball barely got over the height of the wall, and somehow got out.
