CHICAGO — With a 408-foot blast to right, Chicago Cubs center fielder Ian Happ capped off a five-hit, five-run inning for the Cubs against the St. Louis Cardinals. Taking an inside cutter deep for his 12th home run of the year, Happ put the Cubs ahead 6-3 in the bottom of the fifth after they went down by five runs in the top half of the frame.

Leaving the bat at 102 miles per hour and 31 degrees, the two-run home run to right-center scored right fielder Jason Heyward, who singled earlier in the inning. It marked Happ's third homer of July.
