If you guessed that Nico Hoerner would hit the Cubs’ first home run of the year then you’d be right (and probably lying). Hoerner just clubbed a two-run shot to give the Cubs a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the 5th inning.
Hoerner had no home runs in 2021 over 170 plate appearances and he has just three homers over 378 total PAs in his career. But the wind is blowing at today at Wrigley, not to mention the adrenaline is probably pumping pretty heavy too.
