After a very shaky start (more on that later), the Cubs are pantsing the Mets once again.
Jason Heyward got in on the action with a three-run shot to right, and it was a notable one:

That blast for Heyward was his 10th of the season – a notable figure for him on some level, I’m sure – which gives the Cubs nine players with double digit homers on the year. That matches the feat the team pulled off in both 2016 and 2015.
If the Cubs want to top their previous seasons with a 10th 10-homer player, they’ll need Albert Almora to go deep three more times before the end of the season. Not impossible …
