by - Senior Writer -

CHICAGO — With one of the most impressive home runs of his career, Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez obliterated a sinker thrown by San Diego Padres starting pitcher Joey Lucchesi on Saturday. Smashing a 3-run home run into the left-field bleachers at Wrigley Field, Baez put the Cubs in front.

The go-ahead jack carried 412 feet on a rope, leaving the bat at 102 miles per hour. Sporting a launch angle of 26 degrees, the dinger marked Baez's 24th long ball of the year. Second baseman Addison Russell and third baseman David Bote were plated on the bomb, which provided the Cubs with a 6-4 lead in the fourth inning.
