A minor pain point in a loss like last night’s is that it prevents me from really fully enjoying a cool moment like the one Kyle Schwarber had.
When Schwarber homered in the 5th inning to give the Cubs their ill-fated 5-0 lead, it marked his 100th career homer:
Not only was it a lovely blast, therefore, on its own merits, the century-marking homer set a new record for the Cubs:
