The Smokies have a rather decent outfield, Albert Almora and Jacob Hannemann patrolling the same outfield has to make a pitcher feel pretty good. Both guys put on a display last night, the Smokies are a fun group to watch.
A nice piece of two strike hitting from Billy McKinney right there, the 20 year old smacked two doubles in his Tennessee Smokies debut.
With the Cubs trailing 1-0 in the seventh, Anthony Rizzo made a heady defensive play. Matt Harvey popped up a sac bunt attempt, and instead of catching it, Rizzo let it drop and turned two because Harvey wasn’t running. Huge play.
You could have been making a baloney sandwich in the other room and that noise would tell you everything you needed to know, BOOM! Kris Bryant went 3-for-4 tonight with this dinger, a triple, and a walk. That’s three homers in the last four games for Bryant, look out.
Oh, my. That was a loud noise, I miss Javier Baez, he’s getting hot.
Dan Vogelbach is a fantastic hitter, super smart, he can also drive the ball out of the park which is what he did last night.
That’s a big one, folks. If that ball gets into the outfielder then it could be first and second with nobody out in the ninth. Cubs win, and a big reason is that catch right there. Bravo, Starlin Castro.
Of course Kris Bryant hit a dinger into the brand new bleachers on their opening night. BOOM!
Awesomeness all around, Kris Bryant finally gets on the board, and the bench leaves. The Cubs didn’t fare too well, but at least Bryant is on the board.
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.
