The Chicago Cubs made history in their Sunday afternoon victory.
It was pretty pathetic when the Chicago Cubs lost the nightcap of their Saturday doubleheader because of some bad decision making. Craig Kimbrel should not be closing baseball games anymore and he allowed the Cincinnati Reds to win on a walk-off wild pitch. Well, the Cubs knew that needed a big bounce back on Sunday and they got it. Tyler Chatwood was on the mound which makes things uncomfortable but he actually pitched well before having to leave the game with an injury.
What happened later in the game is where the Cubs made Major League Baseball history. The ball was flying out of the park for the Cubs. Ian Happ, Kyle Schwarber, and Jason Heyward all hit two home runs in the game. It was the first time in MLB history that all three starting outfielders hit multiple home runs in the same game. Obviously, it sounds like something that wouldn’t happen very often but to not happen once in 120+ years is very impressive.
