WATCH: Kyle Schwarber Homers on Very First Pitch From Kershaw

Cubs outfielder, Kyle Schwarber, homers off of very first pitch during tonight’s game versus the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Kyle Schwarber has been the premier lead-off hitter for the Cubs as of late, and he has not disappointed.

Off the very first pitch of the ball game from three-time Cy Young award winner, Clayton Kershaw, Schwarber jacks a bomb to straight-away center field.

In the past seven days, Schwarber has hit a cool .280 with three homers and nine RBIs. The homer tonight is an exclamation mark on the fact that Schwarber should indeed stay as the Cubs premier lead-off guy.

Ever since the loss of Dexter Fowler after the 2016 season, the Cubs and Joe Maddon have looked desperately for a new lead-off guy to fill that gap, but with little success. For the time being, I think it’s safe to say that Schwarber should continue to try and fill the lead-off spot.
