Michael A. Taylor hits 3-run home run in Game 5

Michael Taylor home run

Michael A. Taylor did it again!

Taylor clubbed a 3-run home run in the second inning of Game 5 on Thursday to break a 1-1 tie between his Nationals and the Chicago Cubs.

Taylor was up with runners on first and second and swatted at a pitch up and out of the zone, and he delivered it into the bullpen in left field at Nationals Park.

Here’s how far out of the zone the pitch was:

Taylor also hit a huge grand slam in Game 4 to help the Nats win that game and extend the series.

Taylor’s hit came in a string of punishment delivered by the Nats to Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks. Daniel Murphy led off the inning with a solo home run, Anthony Rendon followed with a single, Matt Wieters reached on a bunt single, and then Taylor delivered the 3-run shot.

Not many figured Taylor would be the difference in the series, but that’s turned out to be the case.
