WATCH: Ian Happ mashes 409-foot 2-run round-tripper


by - Senior Writer -

CHICAGO — Carrying forth with the homer-heavy theme of the Chicago Cubs' 3-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates, Ian Happ drilled a 2-run blast on Sunday. Happ originally entered the game as an injury replacement for first baseman Anthony Rizzo, and he went on to hit his sixth dinger of the year.

Mashing a 409-footer out to center field, Happ took Pirates reliever Yacksel Rios deep and put the Cubs up 12-6 in the bottom of the fifth. Leaving the bat at 105 miles per hour, the 2-run round-tripper at Wrigley Field plated shortstop Nico Hoerner, who led off with an infield single.
