Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras is a big fan of playing at Busch Stadium against the St. Louis Cardinals.
In four games this season, Willson has made the Cardinals pay via the long ball. He hit the game-tying home run in the ninth inning on Opening Night, to help the Cubs force extras.
But on Friday night, Willson was back at it.
The catcher hit a home run in the second inning to give the Cubs an early 1-0 lead:

The home run was a big one for Contreras as it left the bat at 109.5 MPH, which is the hardest home run he’s ever hit.
Two innings later, he was back at it again with another home run:

Contreras’ home runs were the first two given up by Leake on the season, ending a streak of 55 innings.
