Clearly, leading off agrees with Jason Heyward – especially his power stroke.
For the second time this series, Heyward led off the Cubs’ half of the first with a homer, this time coming on the first pitch he saw. Heck, he homered before WGN even had a chance to fully put up its on-screen graphic:

Man, this guy is almost as good leading off as Anthony Rizzo.
