Andy White Goes Yard

Yes, he can.

Andres Blanco belted the very first homerun of his career in the 8th inning of a complete beatdown of the Astros today. On an 2-0 changeup from Doug Brocail, Andy hit a line drive that reached the bleachers just inside the right field foul pole. The run hardly mattered, as it was the 11th of the 12 runs the Cubs plated over the Stars. Because it was Blanco's 350th professional plate appearance, making it more rare than Haley's Comet, the Andy White Fan Club will be celebrating tonight by buying rounds of Cabo Wabo at an undisclosed location in the Phoenix area.

Go Cubs!
