WATCH: Jason Heyward smashes go-ahead 410-foot rainmaker


by - Senior Writer -

CHICAGO — Putting the Cubs on top of the Pittsburgh Pirates by a score of 5-3, Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward clobbered a 2-run blast out to right-center in the bottom of the fifth on Sunday. The jack came with two outs and a runner on first and was part of a 3-run inning for the Cubs.

Heyward's 15th long ball of the season, the 410-foot rainmaker was smoked off the bat at 108 miles per hour, generating plenty of excitement from the Wrigley Field faithful. Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was plated on the dinger, which occurred on a changeup thrown by Pirates starter Trevor Williams.
