SAN FRANCISCO — For the seventh time in his career, Chicago Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward went yard at AT&T Park. Leading off the third inning of the Cubs' clash with the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday with a solo home run, Heyward provided Chicago with its first run to make it 4-1.
Traveling 406 feet to right-center, Heyward's sixth homer of the year was scorched, sporting an exit velocity of 104 miles per hour. Batting .282 on the season, Heyward has hit arguably as well as he ever has while a member of the Cubs over the course of the past month. He boasts 39 RBI on the year, which is tied for the third-highest total for a Cub this season.
