You like loud noises? Me too. Kyle Schwarber destroyed a baseball tonight to give the Cubs a 5-0 lead, they currently hold a 5-2 advantage over the Giants in the fifth. Schwarber is a bad man.
It was another frustrating night for the Cubs offense, until Anthony Rizzo took about two months of frustration out on a baseball. Trailing 2-0 in the 8th, Rizzo smacked a three-run dinger to put the Cubs in front for good, and give them the biggest win of the season.
Get ready to start seeing a lot of Eloy Jimenez, last night he destroyed his second dinger of the year. Boom.
Dan Vogelbach made some noise in the Southern League All-Star game last night, boom!
Javier Baez is crushing the ball, tonight he smashed one off the light tower, prepare yourself Chicago, Baez 2.0 is coming soon.
I love watching Albert Almora (Jr.) play defense, here’s a gem from last night.
Another two homer night for Javier Baez as he is knocking down the door to the Major Leagues once again. Baez has played in 32 games with Iowa this season, and is hitting .325 with seven home runs, and 26 RBI’s. Not to mention his K rate is now at 27.5% which is way more playable, he’s getting really close to coming back up.
Jacob Hannemann has been flashing the leather recently, tonight might have been the best of the bunch.
