Welcome back, Jorge Soler! Soler was back in the Smokies lineup for the first time in a while because of injuries, and he made his presence felt as he belted his first AA home run.
Kris Bryant and Javy Baez went deep in the same game for the second time this weekend yesterday. Bryant got all of this one for his eighth home run in Iowa, and 30th overall this season, it’s July 7th.
Yet another opposite field blast for Javier Baez, enjoy the video below.
Bryant and Baez hit HR’s in the same game for the first time…. first…. of many….. in Chicago? We all hope so, for now, enjoy these fireworks (PUN!).
Javy Baez celebrated the Fourth of July by destroying a baseball. It went completely out of the stadium, complex, City, County, State… Boom!
Wow. Tom Loxas and Ken Rosenthal have broke the news that Samardzija, and Hammel have been traded to Oakland for Addison Russell (#1 prospect) Dan Straily, Mckinney (#2 prospect), and a PTBNL.
More to come.
Wow. With the Iowa Cubs trailing 5-2 in the eighth inning, Kris Bryant stepped to the plate with the bases loaded….. BOOM! It was probably the biggest home run that Bryant has hit in his young career, nice to see him come through in a big spot with a huge hit.
Manny Ramirez was one of my favorite players to watch growing up, I saw his whole career, and now he’s playing in the Cubs organization, it’s odd. But last night he showed that he could still destroy a baseball, he had a solid night, he went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI’s, and a run scored in Iowa’s comeback win.
Honestly, how does that ball leave the park? I wish I had that kind of power for like a week, maybe a couple of days. Kris Bryant smacked a three run homer this afternoon for Iowa, it was his fifth home run in six starts at AAA. Keep raking, so I can keep posting these videos!
After hitting two bombs on Sunday, Kris Bryant went deep again yesterday, that’s four homers with Iowa already.
Here’s the video, enjoy.
