There’s No Place Like Home For Dioner Navarro

Dioner Navarro, Tyler Flowers

If you ever need someone to put on a clinic about how to play baseball; Dioner Navarro is your man to call. please call him. Yesterday, Dioner and the North Side Cubs taught the Chicago White Sox a thing or two on the fundamentals of baseball. Final score: 9-3

This has been a week of firsts for the Cubs and it all started with Jeff Samardzija’s beautiful display of deconstruction and dismantlement of the Chicago White Sox on Monday collecting his first Shutout of his career.

Dioner Navarro humiliated three baseballs yesterday on his way to collecting three home runs. just in case you thought it was too early in the morning, I’ll say it again. 3 Home Runs!

“I hit two one time in Little League,” Navarro said. “That was about it. It’s a great feeling and so surreal right now. I can’t speak right now. The most important thing is we got a ‘W’ and [Scott] Feldman did a good job.”

Awe shucks, Dioner. You just banged three home runs in a game, show some excitement you modest Cubs catcher you.

“Let’s not get carried away with a guy having a great game. … It’s just nice to have a backup catcher doing the things he does and handling the pitchers he handles.” Dale Sveum said.

So, the Cubs have won three in a row and although they’re 13 1/2 back of the leader St. Louis, the Cubs are still two up on the Brewers and with this win, don’t be surprised if it carries some valuable momentum going into June.

Well Done, Dioner.

The Cubs aim to finish off the White Sox today when Travis Wood takes to the mound to square off against Jake Peavy Game time is 2:20pm eastern.

    Hey Mr. Canadian, I wonder if you know, can they call Dioner Navarro’s accomplishment a hat trick if it’s not in hockey?

      I think they’d still be able to call it a hat trick.
