2017 Cubs victories revisited, July 27: Cubs 6, White Sox 3


The Cubs improved to 54-47 with this win and increased their lead in the N.L. Central to 1½ games. Their record since the All-Star break improved to 11-2.

As a DH this year, after his triple and two homers helped lead the Cubs to a 6-3 win over the White Sox:

.286/.375/.714, 8-for-28 with a double, a triple, three home runs and seven RBI, all in just seven games serving as a designated hitter.

Not bad, right? Also, there’s this:

I wouldn’t expect Kyle to hit too many more triples, either, but that one was fun.
