WATCH: Albert Almora Jr. hits go-ahead solo bomb in extra innings


by - Senior Writer -

MILWAUKEE — Kicking off extra innings with a bang, Chicago Cubs center fielder Albert Almora Jr. went yard to lead off the top of the 10th inning on Saturday. Putting the Cubs up 3-2 over the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park, Almora cranked a 422-footer out to center.

Almora's 11th long ball of the year, the go-ahead solo shot left the bat at 108 miles per hour and sported a launch angle of 21 degrees. Almora, who entered the game as a pinch hitter earlier in the night, took Brewers reliever Freddy Peralta deep on a four-seamer.
