Sergio! Alcantara Just Hit His First Homer with the Cubs! (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs

While you don’t love that injuries have been the predominant factor in Sergio Alcantara getting a roster spot and then a starting spot lately, you absolutely do love that he’s making the most of it.

Late in today’s game, Alcantara tacked on an insurance run by getting around on a 95 mph fastball at the top of the zone – not at all a bad pitch:

That’s Alcantara’s first homer with the Cubs (second of his career), and it boosts his early line to .304/.320/.696 (162 wRC+).
