Welcome back, Ian Happ.

Happ returned to the Cubs lineup Saturday for the first time since exiting Thursday's game against Pittsburgh after fouling a ball that deflected off his face, near his right eye.

Happ's return was nothing short of triumphant. In Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader with the Cardinals, he blasted a leadoff homer off Wrigley Field's right field video board.

You couldn't have scripted a better return to the lineup for Happ.
