Chicago Cubs backup catcher Victor Caratini hit a 417-foot homer to center field for his first major league homer on Sunday afternoon. The home run had an exit velocity of 103.2 MPH.

The blast broke a 2-2 tie to give the Cubs a 3-2 lead in the seventh inning. Caratini was in the game for the injured Anthony Rizzo who got a day off because of backness soreness.

"Filling in for Anthony Rizzo, part of the job description is to hit for power," Cubs announcer Jim Deshaies said. "And boy, does he deliver!"
