I love it. Kyle Schwarber just keeps hitting the crap out of the ball in the second half, and it continued in the second inning tonight against Zach Davies, a pitcher who gets a lot of his strikeouts against lefties … but also gives up a lot of his homers to them.
And here’s Schwarber’s oppo shot that gave the Cubs an early lead:
Big time players hit big time bombs!

That was awesome. And was especially awesome to see the Cubs at the top step there watching and celebrating the shot. They are as into this game as we internet nerds are. Which, well, I suppose is right.
Schwarber doesn’t get too many cheapies, does he? Even going opposite field on that one, he still hit it 104.4 mph and 418 feet.
Love the fact, and really love the picture:
.@kschwarb12 has five home runs in his last nine games (25 AB).
