Fighting the wind blowing in at Wrigley Field, Chicago Cubs center fielder Albert Almora Jr. jacked a solo home run against the Miami Marlins on Tuesday. The game-tying blast made the score 2-2 in the bottom of the third and served as Almora's second home run of the season.
The 398-foot blast landed in the basket at the top of the wall, carrying 398 feet out just beyond center field. Marlins starter Caleb Smith gave up the homer on a 4-seam fastball thrown right down the middle. The dinger provided Almora, who hit in the leadoff spot on the night, with his eighth RBI.
