CHICAGO — Staying hot and continuing to make things happen via the left field corner at Wrigley Field, Steven Souza Jr. drove home two baserunners in the first inning on Sunday. The right fielder placed the Chicago Cubs ahead 3-0 with a one-out double that bounced into the front of the basket atop the wall.

In Saturday's contest, Souza hit a clutch game-tying home run to the left field corner, and it landed in the basket. Sunday's two-run double was part of a three-run opening frame for the Cubs against Milwaukee Brewers starter Josh Linblom. Kyle Schwarber pushed a run across with an RBI single in the at-bat that preceded Souza's.
