The Phillies trailed by seven runs after three innings, but now the entire ballpark — Harper, too — watched his incredible season continue.

I can attest that he’s had both that presence and that easy stroke at least since 2017, when I first saw him play at the U of A. Saw him play a few more times, spraying line drives all over the yard, playing left field mostly.

Albert Pujols hit a grand slam and doubled in a run in St. Louis’ 9-5 win over Pittsburgh. The slam gave him the major league record for extra base hits by a rookie (83), one more than Johnny Frederick’s total for Brooklyn in 1929. David Ortiz hit his 51st and 52nd homers, breaking the Red Sox record for most homers in a season of 50 set in 1938 by Jimmie Foxx.

If you follow baseball long enough, you can just feel the cliché writing about it. I’m positive that as I write this, somewhere a sportswriter, very possibly even one of the Cubs beat writers, is writing that this was a game that neither team wanted to win. But that’s not really what we saw.

The Chicago Cubs spent much of the 2021 season without reliever Rowan Wick. The right-hander broke out in a big way back in 2019, his first season with the team, and when he’s been healthy, he’s been a key piece of the bullpen. So, needless to say, his absence this year was notable.

Chicago Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks always seems to end his seasons on a high note. He will try to maintain that reputation when he takes the mound against the host Philadelphia Phillies in the rubber game of the three-game series on Thursday evening. Hendricks has been a late-season starever since posting a 1.42 ERA in five postseason starts during Chicago’s World Series-run in 2016.
