The Cubs were missing Ian Happ. You may not have realized it, but it turns out, that explosive final game in Cincinnati before he went on the IL was maybe a sign that he was locking it in, because he was hitting the ball hard in his return yesterday, and today he’s already got three hits.
Including an oppo homer from the right-handed side – you love to see it:

Happ has historically been a much better hitter from the left side, so whenever you see him striking the ball with authority from the right side, it makes you think he’s locking it in. That would be awesome, given the uneven start to the year.
