The Chicago Cubs are beginning a crucial three-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates in their final home stand of the season on Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field. And through one inning, it’s been a wild one.
With the wind blowing out at Wrigley, the Pirates and Cubs have combined for 9 runs through the first inning including three home runs by the Cubs.
One of those home runs was a milestone for rookie Nico Hoerner as he hit his first career homer. Watch as Hoerner gives the Cubs the lead early on:
After collecting his first hit in his first major league game on the road last week, it didn’t take Hoerner long to make a good first impression with the home crowd.
Stay tuned, it’s going to be a wild one at Wrigley.
