You probably know about Kyle Schwarber’s big bat by now. The Cubs’ World Series hero and surprisingly-agile fielder has struggled batting .189 this season after missing most of 2016, and he was hitless in his last four games going into Wednesday’s matchup with the Reds, but he’s still able to hit big shots when needed.
Despite the recent slump, Schwarber launched an absolute bomb during batting practice that broke the neon Budweiser sign atop the right field wall at Wrigley Field.
Here’s the dinger:

You may remember Schwarber hitting a similar bomb not only in an actual game, but in the 2015 NLDS when he was a rookie.
Schwarber didn’t go yard in Wednesday’s game, but sure enough, he did end his hitless streak, driving in two runs on a single in the second inning.
