Kyle Schwarber nearly gets knocked out by flying bat

SHARE Kyle Schwarber nearly gets knocked out by flying bat

The last thing the Cubs need right now is an injury to a key player, especially if the injury happens off the field.

Tuesday night, as the Cubs were on their way to a historic win against the Brewers, Kyle Schwarber needed some quick reaction to avoid a flying bat.

Fortunately for the Cubs, Schwarber was able to duck and cover. The only thing that appeared to be hurt was his ego as his teammates gave him a hard time for his less than graceful dive.

The night was dominated by a pair of big accomplishments. Jake Arrieta won his 20th game of the season while Kris Bryant broke the Cubs rookie home run record with his 26th of the season.
