The Chicago Cubs have been an interesting team to watch so far this season.
Despite losing Willson Contreras to the rival St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago made some key offseason moves.
They added Trey Mancini, Dansby Swanson, Cody Bellinger, and Jameson Taillon.
One of their big offseason additions showed off some power on Sunday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Bellinger had spent the first six seasons of his career in Los Angeles but signed with the Cubs this past winter.
On Sunday, Bellinger went back-to-back with Patrick Wisdom in the top of the sixth inning to give the North Siders a 3-1 lead.

The Cubs ultimately won the game by a final of 3-2.
But it was the back-to-back home runs by Wisdom and Bellinger that made the difference.
In fact, it was Bellinger’s home run that proved to be the most crucial.
The slugger went deep in his old ballpark at Dodger Stadium on Sunday.
In addition to the key home runs, left-hander Drew Smyly gave the Cubbies 5.2 innings and allowed just one run on four hits, striking out three and walking just two.
Chicago battled back from an early 1-0 deficit and ultimately secured a series win on Sunday.
The back-to-back home runs made the difference in the game, with Bellinger’s first home run at Dodger Stadium as a member of the Cubs being the most crucial.
The Cubs will now travel to Oakland and begin a three-game series with the Oakland Athletics.NEXT: Fans React To Today's Ian Happ News
