Kemp went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit two-run homer in Saturday's 9-8 loss to the Cardinals.

The home run was his eighth of the season -- and first in the National League -- as he connected in the seventh inning off Giovanny Gallegos to put the Cubs in front 8-7. The 27-year-old was hitting just .172 since he was acquired by the Cubs on July 31. Kemp's overall .215/.291/386 slash line isn't impressive, but his eight home runs represent a career high.
