Cubs Blow Up for Five-Run 5th Inning, Capped By This Ian Happ Bomb (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs

Although Kyle Hendricks struggled through 4.2 innings, and there’s still a ways to go in the game, you always felt like the Cubs’ bats had a chance to come back from their early 3-1 deficit. It’s just what they’ve been doing lately.

And, sure enough, bop bop bop bop bop later, and the Cubs had taken a 4-3 lead. That alone would have made for a very satisfying 5th inning.

But we always want more. We want to be HAPP-y! … I’m sorry for that. Just watch the dong:

Happ crushed that one:

That was Happ’s 12th homer on the year, and he’s hitting a very healthy .257/.378/.464 (124 wRC+). Young man has been fantastic.
