Schwarber blasted two home runs during the Cubs’ 9-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday.

The second multi-home run game of Schwarber’s rookie season puts him in rare company.

Some of the more notable players that have matched Schwarber’s feat of two or more home runs in two or more of his first 31 MLB games:

Jose Abreu

Orlando Cepeda

J.D. Drew

Manny Ramirez

Jorge Soler

Schwarber is sixth on the Cubs with eight home runs. His 103 at-bats are more than 300 fewer than the Cubs’ leading home run hitter Anthony Rizzo’s 406.
