Jason Heyward Just Knocked His 9th Homer of the Year – More Than Last Year Already (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs and Cardinals are trading solo homers tonight, apparently. Anthony Rizzo went deep in the top of the first, matched by Paul Goldschmidt in the bottom of the frame.

Top of the second, it was Jason Heyward’s turn:

I feel like that’s the third Heyward homer this year that’s been 99.9 mph off the bat. I guess he just doesn’t want to show off.

On the year, it’s already 9 homers for Heyward, who hit just 8 all of last year. He’s currently hitting .246/.357/.430 with a 107 wRC+.
