Joc Pederson Just Put One into McCovey Cove

Chicago Cubs

I mentioned it before the game: Joc Pederson was probably dying to get in there against Giants starter Anthony DeSclafani tonight, given their history (5-11, 3HRs, 2B before tonight). And sure enough, he came through with his fourth homer off DeSclafani in the third inning.

Take a look at Joc Pederson splashing one into McCovey Cove:

That was Pederson’s fifth homer of the season, and it was absolutely demolished at 110 MPH. With Eric Sogard already on base, that gave the Cubs the lead.
