DETROIT — Going yard for the fourth time on the season and accruing his second RBI of the night, Chicago Cubs third baseman David Bote belted a solo home run at Comerica Park on Monday. The leadoff jack in the top of the fourth put the Cubs up 3-1 on Detroit Tigers rookie starter Casey Mize.

Bote previously tagged Mize for an RBI single in the second frame. His fourth-inning blast was scorched out to left, leaving the bat at 107 mph and sailing 455 feet. The dinger, which came on slider thrown by Mize on a full count, increased Bote's RBI total to 15.

Bote's bomb marked the longest home run of the season for the Cubs and the second-longest of Bote's career. Furthermore, the long ball served as just the 22nd home run hit by Cubs player during the Statcast era to travel at least 455 feet.
