Well, this change of scenery is certainly treating Daniel Murphy well. The talented middle infielder just can't stop raking since his relocation from the Washington Nationals, and he's been making the Cincinnati Reds pay this weekend. After clocking a game-tying homer Friday afternoon, he's followed up today with another two-run shot to extend the North Siders' lead in daytime action at Wrigley Field.

The 405-footer was the eighth of the year overall for the three-time All-Star, who wasn't able to make his 2018 debut until mid-June thanks to an extended recovery process following knee surgery.
But if you're a Cubs fan, you're more than sure that swooping in for Murph has been worth it.
