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.

Schwarber so excited about how good @Cubs are he’s head over heels. @ESPNChiCubs #Cubs

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.
