Morning Blast: Watch Highlights from Cubs v. Rockies; Lester Home Run
If you’re like me you just woke up and realized that the Cactus League season is over and there are now ONLY FOUR MORE DAYS(!!) until the Cubs opening game. Yes, yes, and yes! To celebrate, the Cubs decided to rip the Rockies apart yesterday in their Cactus League finale. Here are some fun video highlights to flavor your day.
First up, it’s David Ross as he hits the first of three doubles he had on the day, driving in Addison Russell and Matt Szczur in the bottom of the second inning (CHC 2, COL 0):
Next is the crème de la crème of the highlights from yesterday. Yes, it’s Jon Lester’s first and only home run in his career, a two-run shot. And yes, being there was totally as fun as it looks like it was (CHC 5, COL 0):
Not to be outdone, Kyle Schwarber follows Lester with a solo home run of his own for back-to-back jacks (CHC 6, COL 0):
And yes, we’re still in the bottom of the fourth inning when David Ross hits his second double of the inning (he had one before the Lester HR), and third double of the day, to drive in Tommy La Stella and Addison Russell (CHC 10, COL 0):
Now that was a great way to start a day!
