Maybe batting Jason Heyward clean-up is a worthwhile proposition, after all? Cubs manager Joe Maddon is rolling with his controversial outfielder in the NO. 4 spot despite opposition from literally all angles. J-Hey made Maddon look awfully smart with this first-inning blast.

Sorry, Pirates, but playing spoiler two games in a row at Wrigley is one tough feat, especially with Chicago in full desperation mode. The Cubs sit just a half-game over Milwaukee in the NL Central. A win tonight at Wrigley could give them some breathing room.
