Harrison Bader filled up the box score on Saturday afternoon, going 4-for-4 with a home run, a double, three runs scored, two RBI, and two stolen bases in a win over the Cubs.
If you had Bader in your lineup on Saturday, I salute you. What a time of the season to have a stat-stuffing performance like Bader had at Wrigley Field today. The homer was Bader's 14th of the season while the steals were his seventh and eighth of the year. It's been an up-and-down year for the Gold Glove-caliber centerfielder. With that said, however, Bader has been sizzling hot at the plate over the past week, going a preposterous 13-for-19 (.684) over the past five games with a pair of homers. If you need an offensive boost over the final week of the season, Bader certainly is worth a look.
