Former Cubs star Kyle Schwarber is dominating in the World SeriesVincent Pariseon November 2, 2022 at 12:00 pm

The Chicago Cubs were an exciting team at times during the 2022 season but they were mostly bad. There is a lot of optimism surrounding certain players in the organization but they have a long way to go before they are as good as they were during the mid-2010s.

Speaking of the mid-2010s, they had some really good teams during that time. One of the better hitters on those teams was Kyle Schwarber. We all know about how he came back from injury in the 2016 World Series and was one of the best players in the entire series for either side.

Now, all these years later, he is in the World Series again. The Cubs let him go after the 2020 season because they felt that three months of Joc Pederson was more worth the money. That didn’t go as planned.

Schwarber has only gotten better since leaving town. As mentioned before, he is now dominating in the World Series with a new squad. His amazing bat is a big reason that the Philadelphia Phillies are where they are.

Kyle Schwarber has played a big part in the Philadelphia Phillies going deep.

Of course, big stars like Bryce Harper, JT Realmuto, Rhys Hoskins, and Zach Wheeler are doing their part as well but Schwarber deserves a lot of credit. He has fit in amazingly there and now they lead the World Series 2-1.

This is after a dominant 7-0 win in Game Three on Tuesday night. After some Halloween rain pushed this third game back a day, the Phillies were ready. In game one, Schwarber had a hit, a walk, and a run scored to help them come back from a 5-0 deficit. He knew he could do more.

The Phillies were just dominated in game two so they came into this one angry. With Schwarber on first base in the first inning, Bryce Harper hit a monster two-run home run to give them a 2-0 lead. They didn’t look back from there.

Later in the game, Schwarber hit a two-run home run of his own to give himself another run scored and two World Series RBIs. This is Schwarber’s first career World Series home run. It is fair to say that he was a huge part of getting this win.

Now, Schwarber and the Phillies are two wins away from taking down these Houston Astros for a World Series championship. There is still a long way to go so a few more big Schwarber performances would be appreciated. After all, it is great to see him succeed no matter where it is.
