Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo hit a two out, 3-run home run to tie the game at 5-5 with two outs in the ninth inning against the Reds.

The homer traveled an estimated 383 feet and had an exit velocity of 108 MPH. It was Rizzo's second game-tying homer of his career and first since 2012 according to ESPN Stats and Info.

The Cubs ended up winning the game and are in first place in the division for the first time this season.

According to Elias, Cubs have won three straight games after trailing by three or more runs for the first time since 1929.
