Cubs’ Bonifacio Sets Record: Nine Hits In Two Games


Though the Cubs are now 0-2, in heartbreaking fashion — c’mon, two extra-innings, walkoff losses to start a season? — they have at least one bright spot thus far. New leadoff man Emilio Bonifacio has set a modern-day, major-league record with nine hits through the first two games of the regular season.

Bonifacio went 4-for-5 on Opening Day and followed it up by going 5-for-7 in Wednesday’s 16-inning affair. So he’s hitting .750 through two games.
