by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2013) Cubs catcher Dioner Navarro entered Wednesday's game against the Cubs with three home runs on the season, a total he doubled in just three at-bats in a 9-3 win.
Navarro slugged a solo home run in the second inning and a two-run shot in the fourth, before walking and scoring in his next at-bat in the sixth. He then came up again in the seventh and clubbed a three-run homer to Sheffield Ave., giving him six RBI on the game. He scored four runs while batting 3 for 3.
Navarro raised his batting average from .200 to .241 in the game, while nearly doubling his RBI (now 13) and run (9) totals for the season. Navarro became the first Cubs catcher to homer three times in a game since 1974, and the first Cub to hit home runs from both sides of the plate in a game since 2002.
