WATCH: Bote throttles baseball on 3-run no-doubter


by - Senior Writer -

With just a little over a year's worth of big-league experience under his belt, Chicago Cubs third baseman David Bote has already developed a reputation as a clutch hitter. After hitting a mammoth 3-run blast against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night, Bote might now have a reputation as a power hitter.

Smoking a 469-footer to left that was hammered off the bat at 114 miles per hour, Bote put the Cubs up 5-0 in the top of the third. Bote's second home run of the season generated quite a reaction from the awestruck fans in attendance at Chase Field, with the rainmaker carrying high up into the seats beyond left field.
