Cubs prospect Pete Crow-Armstrong hit the best home run of the season

Pete Crow-Armstrong poses after home run

Pete Crow-Armstrong hit what has to be the most satisfying home run of the season.

On Friday, Crow-Armstrong was facing former MLB pitcher Wily Peralta in a Triple-A game between PCA’s Iowa Cubs and Peralta’s Indianapolis Indians. Crow-Armstrong, who was a first-round pick by the Chicago Cubs in 2020, had been having a big series against Indianapolis with six hits and two home runs in the prior three games. Perhaps Peralta wanted to send a message to Crow-Armstrong, because he threw at the 22-year-old outfielder twice.

Crow-Armstrong’s manager Marty Pevey was ejected for defending his player. Then on the next pitch, Crow-Armstrong blasted a home run to right field.

Crow-Armstrong sure enjoyed his trip around the bases — for a good reason.

PCA played in 13 games for the Cubs last season and 23 this season, but he has spent equal time in Triple-A with the Iowa Cubs this year. He’s showing the kind of power — and grit — that the Cubs probably love to see.
