The Cubs haven’t had any real offense today against former Cub Cory Abbott, who had given up just two hits heading into the 5th inning today. Abbott issued a leadoff walk in the top of the 5th to Rafael Ortega. He then served up a hanging curveball to P.J. Higgins, who proceeded to send it over the wall.
The ball landed 394 feet away and gave the Cubs a 2-1 lead.
