Chicago Cubs: Kyle Schwarber hits first home run of the season
Oh, how we have missed Kyle Schwarber home runs.
The 24-year-old outfielder is officially back after hitting a three-run bomb against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday afternoon.
Schwarber stepped to the plate with two men on and the Cubs trailing 4-2 when he launched a massive home run deep into the right field corner.
The home run gave the Cubs a 5-4 lead.

It’s Schwarber’s first home run since the 2015 season after missing most of the 2016 campaign with a torn ACL.
He did return for the Cubs World Series run, playing DH in four of the seven games against the Cleveland Indians.
Imagine how scary a full season from Schwarber would be.
