Kyle Schwarber's bat has continued to stay hot, and the Chicago Cubs are benefiting from it. The former Indiana star had a double and a walk on Sunday and scored two runs in the Cubs' 9-1 victory at Wrigley Fied.

Schwarber, the Cubs' left-fielder, had a hit in all three games this weekend, the first of the season that was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Schwarber is one of four former Hoosiers baseball players currently in the major leagues.

Josh Phegley, Schwarber's teammate on the Cubs, saw his first action on Sunday. He came in for Victor Caratini and batted twice, walking and scoring a run and striking out. This is Phegley's first season with the Cubs.

The two other Hoosiers in the big leagues are outfielder Alex Dickerson and pitcher Caleb Baragar of the San Francisco Giants. Neither played in the Giants' 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Giants are off on Monday. Schwarber, Phegley and the Cubs travel to Cincinnati for a 6:40 p.m. ET game with the Reds.
