Fun With Jason Heyward’s Big, Never-Before-Duplicated Game

Chicago Cubs

Although you could point to last year’s walk-off grand slam, the three-hit-three-RBI-winner, or even Game Seven of the World Series solely because of The Speech, it’s possible that Jason Heyward had his best game as a Chicago Cub last night.

Heyward reached base all five times he came to the plate, homered twice, and stole two bases for good measure. That’s a fantastic game, and also a unique game right there:

Bonus on the stolen base part: the two steals last night were twice as many as Heyward had all of last season.

The big night pushed Heyward’s early-season line up to a whopping .370/.419/.704, with a 176 wRC+. Ironically, he’s rating as a negative defensive player right now. Small samples are funny … good ole big-bat, no-glove Jason Heyward, AMIRITE?

In all seriousness, this is pretty awesome:

Enjoy a big day, Jason:
