CHICAGO — Sailing 418 feet out to center field, Jason Heyward's second home run of the year cut the Chicago Cubs' late deficit in half on Saturday. The solo shot in the bottom of the eighth made the score 4-3 in favor of the Milwaukee Brewers and gave the Cubs their first run since the second inning.
Heyward went yard off a 95.1-mph four-seamer thrown by Brewers reliever Devin Williams. The two-out blast carried into the center field seats at Wrigley Field with an exit velocity of 107.5 mph and a launch angle of 23 degrees. As a result, the Cubs right fielder increased his season RBI total to five.
