After Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks allowed one run in the top of the first inning, the Cubs were looking for someone to lift the offense.
Dexter Fowler and Kyle Schwarber went down on strikes against Atlanta Braves pitcher Shelby Miller. But Cubs outfielder Chris Coghlan helped even the game with a solo home run into the left field bleachers.

Coghlan extend his four-game hitting streak with the solo shot, and he’s been on fire lately. In the last seven games, the Cubs outfielder is hitting .467 with four home runs and 10 RBI.
