WATCH: Jason Heyward drills 2-run single up middle as part of 3-run inning


by - Senior Writer -

CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs cut into their 5-run deficit by plating three runs in the bottom of the fourth to make the score 6-4 in favor of the visiting Atlanta Braves. Current Cubs and former Braves right fielder Jason Heyward was responsible for driving in two of the three runs in the fourth frame by way of a line drive hit up the middle.

Heyward's 2-run single at Wrigley Field scorched passed Brave starting pitcher Bryse Wilson and into shallow center field, plating first baseman Anthony Rizzo and shortstop Javier Baez with ease. Heyward scored later in the inning on a wild pitch, as he hustled home from third base and slid in safely at the plate. The veteran outfielder now has 30 RBI on the year.
