Cubs Clips: Video Highlights of the Cubs Offensive Explosion Against the Reds

Lost in all the excitement of Jake Arrieta’s no-hitter last night was the fact that the Cubs completely crushed the ball against the Reds. As much as a no-hitter is complete pitching domination, the Cubs bats did it just as much (well…almost) on the offensive side. I’ve never witnessed a more complete dismantling of a baseball team. Going forward I don’t think anyone should question whether Cubs’ fans are too excited about this season.

On the offense side of things, Kris Bryant has to be the MVP. He finished the night after going 4-for-6 with four runs and six RBIs, including two home runs, one of which was a grand slam. And that’s how scary good the Cubs are this year, a super star has that kind of night and it barely gets a mention. Scary.

Here’s video of all of Kris Bryant’s four runs including 1) his first inning two-run shot that, little did we know at the time, would be all the runs the Cubs would need, 2) Anthony Rizzo’s three-run home run in the top of the sixth inning, 3) Kris’ grand slam in the top of the seventh inning, and 4) Ben Zobrist’s two-run double in the top of the ninth inning:

And of course, no highlights from last night would be complete without David Ross’ opposite field home run in the top of the sixth inning:

And finally, here’s a link showing Ben Zobrist’s first home run as a Cub. He hammered a ball that was pretty high up in the zone way out to the opposite field. An impressive piece of hitting.
