Nico Hoerner Blasts His First Home Run of the Year as the Cubs Pour It On
It was already the case that Nico Hoerner was BLISTERING hot coming into today. And then he singled twice to start his day, and the blisters continued.
But now he really put a capper on his recent hot streak by ripping his first homer of the year:
Hoerner’s season slash line is up to an outstanding .357/.400/.452/134 wRC+. It’s crazy to think about what happens to this offense if his baseline winds up anywhere close to that.
