Rookie Frank Schwindel is hitting .356 with nine home runs and 25 RBIs in 31 games since the Cubs claimed him off waivers from Oakland in mid-July. The 29-year-old homered into Wrigley Field’s video board, then hustled for a game-ending RBI single Saturday in a 7-6 win over Pittsburgh. Chicago has won five in a row and the Pirates have lost five straight. Schwindel is with his third team in the majors. He got a brief look with Kansas City in 2019, didn’t play in the big leagues last year and hit .150 in eight games for the A’s earlier this year.
