The legend of Mash Mervis continues!
Those were the words of Iowa Cubs broadcaster Alex Cohen as the slugging DH/first baseman circled the bases following a walk-off blast Thursday night. It was Mervis’s second homer in as many games and he now has 26 dingers to trail only teammate Alexander Canario (31) for the most in the system. Mervis also has 97 runs batted in to lead the entire Cubs organization.

Far be it for me to take credit for the recent surge, but I did wear my M*A*S*H Mervis t-shirt to the I-Cubs’ game in Indianapolis on Saturday.
