It feels like every time Patrick Wisdom steps to the plate lately, he hits a home run.

Wisdom followed up Friday's two-home run game against the White Sox with another two on Saturday. In doing so, he joined exclusive company in Cubs history.

Wisdom is the ninth player in recorded Cubs history to have back-to-back multi-home run games.

He's also the seventh Cub since 1970 to have two separate eight-game stretches with six or more home runs, following Dave Kingman (1979), Andre Dawson (1987), Ryne Sandberg (1990), Sammy Sosa (1995, 1998-2002), Moises Alou (2004), Alfonso Soriano (2007) and Kris Bryant (2016) — according to the Cubs' Jesse Feldman.

The 30-year-old has seven home runs in his last eight games, one of which broke up a no-hitter late in last Saturday's game against the Royals. 

But wait, there's more. Wisdom is also the first Cubs rookie with back-to-back multi-home run games since at least 1901, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

He's up to 25 home runs this season, one shy of tying Kris Bryant's single-season Cubs rookie record (26) set in 2015.

The power of the mustache is real.
