The Cubs’ bats have primarily slumbered for a couple days now, and although one swing doesn’t entirely count as them waking up … it was a heckuva swing.
Patrick Wisdom, longgggg game-tying shot in the bottom of the 8th:
That is just absurdly far up the bleachers for that part of the park. It was 110.0 mph off the bat, and zero doubt about it to left center. That is Wisdom’s 17th homer of the year, and it was 450 feet, just to be sure it got out.
