It’s been a busy few weeks for Kyle Schwarber. Drafted by the Cubs in early June, goes to Boise and demolishes the pitching there, now he finds himself at Kane County, and he continues to mash. Schwarber is slugging with the best of them right now, and tonight was no different as he went 2-for-3 with a double, his first Low A home run, a walk, an RBI, and two runs scored.
Schwarber is now 15-for-26 as a professional ballplayer, that includes two doubles, a triple, five home runs, and twelve RBI… good Lord.
Video of the home run coming as soon as it is available. We will be at the Cougars game on Sunday, I will get plenty of pictures.
Kris Bryant made the wait for the Iowa Cubs game today well worth it. After a lengthy rain delay, and three empty at bats from Bryant, he delivered. After falling behind 0-2 in the count, Bryant worked it full and drove the next pitch over the right field wall for his first AAA home run.
The kid is special, the fans in Tennessee learned that quickly, now the fans in Iowa will figure it out, then… well, Chicago.
Here are a couple videos of the HR…
The hype machine is now in full effect as Kris Bryant himself announced on twitter that he is headed to Iowa. The kid has been crushing it at Double-A, just won the HR derby at the all-star game, and has basically embarrassed every pitcher he has faced. Time for the next challenge, interested to see how he adjusts to Triple-A pitching.
The thing about these Kris Bryant home runs? They are 360-370 foot line drives, when he gets all of one it goes a very long way. Home run number twenty…. on June 7th. Swoon.
