CHICAGO — With the third home run of his young career, Chicago Cubs shortstop Nico Hoerner put the Cubs on top of the St. Louis Cardinals in the bottom of the sixth on Saturday. A leadoff solo blast that carried out to left-center field put the Cubs up 6-5.
The 395-footer at Wrigley Field led off the bottom of the sixth. Hoerner connected on a fastball thrown by Cardinals reliever Ryan Helsley and sent it into the seats, with the go-ahead dinger leaving the bat at 102 miles per hour and 22 degrees.
