CHICAGO Dioner Navarro hit three home runs in a game for the first time in his career, connecting from both sides of the plate at Wrigley Field on Wednesday and leading the Chicago Cubs over the White Sox 9-3.

Navarro had never homered more than once in a game, but he sure had his swing going while driving in a career-high six runs and scoring four times. He became the first Cubs player to hit three homers in a game since Aramis Ramirez against Houston on July 20, 2010, at Wrigley and their first catcher to do it since George Mitterwald on April 17, 1974, against Pittsburgh.

The last Cubs switch-hitter to homer from the left and right sides in a game was Mark Bellhorn against Milwaukee on Aug. 29, 2002.
