Schwarber shows Cubs he belongs

BY foxsports • June 18, 2015


With several friends and family members in attendance, Cubs prospect Kyle Schwarber had one heck of a game Tuesday night.

Not only did Schwarber collect his first career hit, an RBI triple, in the second inning, but he went 4-for-5 with two RBIs and a trio of runs scored.

"I didn't see that one coming," Schwarber told of the triple. "At least I go the first one out of the way."

All in all it was a great night for Schwarber, and the Cubs (who won 17-0) and he was happy that he got to enjoy it with those closest to him.

"It's awesome to have them here and be able to watch my first start," Schwarber said. "It was a great feeling. I know that they were really happy for me and I was just really pumped that they were able to make it."
