CHICAGO — In a pinch-hitting spot, Ian Happ came up clutch for the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. With the Cubs trailing the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3, Happ drilled a game-tying 2-run shot out to center field in the bottom of the fourth.

Obliterating a fastball thrown by Cardinals Dominic Leone, Happ crushed a 443-footer at Wrigley Field that made the score 5-5. Happ's seventh home run of the year left the bat at 105 miles per hour and 27 degrees.
