Big day for the Cubs. Ryan Dempster leads a shutout in New York and now Jae-Hoon Ha has blasted a 2-run homer in the Futures Game in Kansas City. Ha was facing Pittsburgh's Gerrit Cole, who like him is playing at the Double-A level. He laid off two fastballs (one at 95, another at 97) to take a 2-0 edge in the count. He fouled off the next pitch and then drove a 95-mph fastball, up in the zone, out of Kauffman Stadium. It was an opposite-field shot that just kept carrying and carrying, clearing the left-field fence. Ha has only 3 homers in 317 at-bats for Tennessee.
