Connor Joe wins Smashburger’s “Smashed It” Play of the Week
Connor Joe earned this week’s Smashburger “Smashed It” Play of the Week for his home run against the Cubs on Sunday afternoon at Wrigley Field.
The Rockies were leading Chicago 3-0 in the second inning when Joe came to the plate. He launched a line drive to left field, barely clearing the wall and into the bleachers. Rockies play-by-play announcer Drew Goodman called it a “Wrigley Field” home run, which it was. Still, it’s nice to see Joe tally another homer, as he’s had a slow second half of the season. Colorado went on to win the game 4-3.
Here’s how Joe’s homer looked and sounded on Sunday afternoon:
JOE! JOE! JOE!
