The Cubs offense had completely stalled on the road, but the one guy who’s been decent throughout – Jason Heyward – kicked off the homestand with a huge opposite field home run.
JASON HEYWARD BLAST:

That was Heyward’s 16th homer of the season, which puts him just two away from tying the second-most he’s ever had in a single season. Heyward is slashing .279/.355/.466 (112 wRC+) this year. WOO!
