If we've learned anything about Chicago Cubs top prospect Nico Hoerner over the last couple of days, it's that he'll be a Pittsburgh Pirates killer, no matter what comes of his career. For the second time in as many days, Hoerner belted a homer against Pittsburgh, this one a three-run blast to give the Cubs an absurd 13-1 lead.
It doesn't matter if the wind was blowing out or not. The breaking ball was hung up in the zone, and from there he clobbered it over the left field fence for his second career home run.
That was Hoerner's third hit of the day, and in his sixth game he's hitting a whopping .417 with two home runs and 11 RBI. I'd say he's a keeper.
