With the Chicago Cubs' third home run of the night against the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday, left fielder Kyle Schwarber made quite the statement with one of the most epic dingers of his career. Pulverizing a changeup thrown by Mariners reliever Brandon Brennan, Schwarber sent a 2-run jack 440 feet out to right for his fourth round-tripper of the year.
Coming with Willson Contreras on base, the mammoth blast put the Cubs up 6-5 on the Mariners in the top of the eighth and came after Daniel Descalcso and Anthony Rizzo both went yard for Chicago earlier in the contest. Schwarber made perfect contact on the pitch and sent it flying at 112 miles per hour off the bat and into the bleachers.
