For the first time in his MLB career, Chicago Cubs third baseman David Bote produced a multi-homer performance on Saturday. After drilling a 3-run blast in the third inning, Bote crushed a 2-run bomb in the fifth inning. Bote, who entered the night with one home run on the season, tabbed his third long ball of 2019 on a lined shot that carried 417 feet out to left-center.
The fifth-inning dinger was a 2-run homer that plated Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo and put the Cubs ahead of the Arizona Diamondbacks by a score of 7-0. Flying off the bat at 110 miles per hour, the screamer sailed into the bleachers in a hurry.
