Not bad for his first at bat ever in a Big League spring training game that also happened to be on his 22nd birthday.
Cubs catcher Kyle Schwarber came up against the Giants' Ryan Vogelsong and hit a Grand Slam!
If you saw the clip (and I'm sure you did), you saw a super-pumped Schwarber who must have sprinted when the cam followed the ball over the fence because when they focused back on the basebath, he's right behind Kris Bryant.
I read somewhere that the team gave him the silent treatment when he came to the dugout.
I would love to see that.
So that was super cool in the Giants game, and in the Oakland game Travis Wood struck out 2 with no walks in his 2 innings while Mr. Mike Olt went 1 for 2 with a 2-run homer and a strikeout.
Plus Neil Ramirez went 2 for 3.
With him that means he struck out 2 of the 3 batters he faced.
Because he's Neil "The Man Of Steel His Pitches So Unreal The Batter Says I Got A Raw Deal If I'm In Court I'd Appeal Cause He's My Achilles' Heel" Ramirez.
I'm kinda giddy just typing words that are about baseball.
BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME!
Jon Lester, the Cub.
PS: It's just insane that the Cubs got Kris Bryant and Kyle Schwarber in back to back drafts. INSANE!
