Happ, a switch-hitter batting from the left side, belted a two-run homer well over the left-field wall in the third inning to extend the Cubs' lead to 5-2 over the Dodgers on Saturday night. He finished the game 1-for-4 with two runs scored and a walk to go with the two RBIs. On Friday, the 2015 first-round Draft pick hit his first Triple-A home run, a solo shot in a 7-5 win over Oklahoma City.
Candelario hit a three-run shot to left in the first inning on Saturday before adding a two-RBI double in the fifth, increasing his RBI total to a Pacific Coast League-leading 10. The 23-year-old third baseman also hit a first-inning homer in Friday's win.
Happ is coming off a tremendous Cactus League performance during Spring Training with the Cubs, as he batted .383 with seven doubles and five home runs in 60 at-bats. In 134 games between Class A Advanced Myrtle Beach and Double-A Tennessee last season, Happ hit .279/.365/.445 with 15 home runs.
Candelario split the 2016 season between Tennessee and Iowa, batting .283/.376/.464 with 13 homers in 132 games. He was briefly called up in July, appearing in five games for the Cubs and going 1-for-11 with a single.
