Although last night’s game was not televised, the in-stadium feed and the Cubs are hooking us up with some joy this morning.
The Cubs beat the Giants on the strength of two solo homers, first by Ian Happ:
That home run led off the game for the Cubs – his third leadoff homer of the spring – and was the second time this spring that Happ has hit a leadoff homer off of Madison Bumgarner. That’ll be something to tell the kids about.
Happ continues to destroy all comers in the “leadoff race,” such as that’s a thing this spring. It’s pretty much a lock at this point: in the games he starts this season in the early going, he’ll be the leadoff hitter.
The Cubs’ second run and second homer came courtesy of Addison Russell, who knocked his first homer of the Spring:
Russell crushed that one, also off of Bumgarner. That lawn is packed by the way!
