The Chicago Cubs became the first major league baseball team since 1901 to see all three of its outfielder amass more than one homerun in the same game on Sunday in a 10-1 win over the Reds in Cincinnati.
Ian Happ, Kyle Schwarber, Jason Heyward all sent the ball out of bounds twice. They were also the authors of all points of the formation of Illinois.
Schwarber and Heyward got the ball rolling in the fourth inning, while Happ emulated his colleagues in the fifth.
Heyward did it again in the sixth, while Happ stretched his arms again in the seventh. Finally, Schwarber added the icing on the sundae with a grand slam in the final engagement.
It was also the first time three Cubs players had amassed two or more home runs in the same game since April 16, 1955.
At the mound, it was Jose Quintana (1-0) who obtained the victory. Arrived on the hill in fourth, the gunner allowed a point on two hits and removed six opponents on catches in three innings of work.
On the other hand, the defeat was added to the record of Luis Castillo (0-5), who has still not been successful in seven starts this season. The Reds’ only point came from a long ball from Joey Votto.
A full match for Wainwright
In St. Louis, Cardinals gunner Adam Wainwright contested the entire game and gave his club a 7-2 win over the Cleveland Indians.
The pitcher, who was celebrating his 39th birthday, gave his opponents just four hits and two walks in nine innings on the mound. It allowed Tyler Naquin to register the only two points for the losers, him who hit a home run in the second period.
Wainwright (3-0) also passed nine of his opponents in the mitt.
Offensively, the “Cards” were propelled by outfielder Dexter Fowler. The latter managed a solo homerun and pushed two of his teammates to the plate with a double.
The setback was cashed by pitcher Aaron Civale (3-4).
