Watch: P.J. Higgins Hits Two-Run Homer Against Nationals to Give Cubs Lead
The Cubs haven’t had any real offense today against former Cub Cory Abbott, who had given up just two hits heading into the 5th inning today. Abbott issued a leadoff walk in the top of the 5th to Rafael Ortega. He then served up a hanging curveball to P.J. Higgins, who proceeded to send it over the wall.
The ball landed 394 feet away and gave the Cubs a 2-1 lead.
