WATCH: Kyle Schwarber blasts 444-foot grand slam, Cubs set MLB record

The Chicago Cubs showed their big-time power potential as they impressively launched six homers against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday.

In the ninth inning, Kyle Schwarber crushed a 444-foot grand slam to put the Cubs up a convincing 10-1.

"My goodness, that ball was completely disrespected," Jim Deshaies said on air watching the laser of a homer run.

The Cubs had three players hit two homers a piece with Schwarber, Jason Heyward, and Ian Happ. This tied an MLB record done several times, dating back to 1901 according to ESPN Stats & Info.

It was also done by the Cubs in 1955 by teammates Ernie Banks, Randy Jackson, and Dee Fondy.

The Cubs are also the first team in MLB history to have all three starting outfielders hit two homers in the same game.

Check out the historic blast below:
