Maybe an Ottawa High School graduate was the key to ending a losing streak for the Cubs.
2013 OTHS graduate Michael Hermosillo was called up to the Cubs on Tuesday. The 26-year-old outfielder has had a stellar minor league season so far with the Triple-A Iowa Cubs batting .310 with 10 home runs. Hermosillo has played parts of the past three seasons for the Los Angeles Angels.
The Ottawa alum came off the bench Tuesday night and flew out to right field in his only at bat. Hermosillo finished the game in centerfield for the Cubs.
