Schwarber's smash started the bashing bonanza at about 3:30 p.m. The Chicago Cubs outfielder stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning while his team trailed 3-1. The Cubs won their contest against the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3.
"It was nice to come up in that spot and be able to help out," Schwarber told MLB.com. "It's kind of a sigh of relief. I want to go up there and help my team, and for me to do that today was great."
Just over an hour later, Atlanta Braves first baseman Matt Adams joined the party. Adams stepped to the plate in the fifth inning against the Cincinnati Reds. His bases-juiced-hammer put the Braves up 4-1. He came back later with a walk-off solo shot, giving his team a 6-5 win.
"This is just a park where I see the ball well," Adams told MLB.com. "That helps too with the confidence. When you're in the box, you're feeling comfortable and knowing you're going to see the ball well. They've got a tough pitching staff. I was just trying to get a ball out over the plate and put some barrels on some balls."
Colorado Rockies outfielder Ian Desmond joined the party just after 5 p.m. His third home run of the season happened in the seventh inning against the San Diego Padres, with the Rockies up 4-1. Colorado won the contest 10-1.
