9/15 Colvin hits 20th HR
Tyler Colvin became the fourth rookie in Cubs history to hit 20 home runs in a season when he connected on a three-run shot in the seventh inning Wednesday. Colvin homered off St. Louis’ Chris Carpenter, hitting a 3-2 pitch into the right field seats.
Colvin joins Hall of Famer Billy Williams (25 homers in 1961), Geovany Soto (23 in 2008) and Walt Moryn (23 in 1956) to accomplish the feat for the Cubs. Williams and Soto both won National League Rookie of the Year.
