by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Cubs second baseman Javier Baez hit a grand slam to the left-field bleachers in the first inning to put the Cubs up 5-0 against the Cincinnati Reds.

The home run traveled 415 feet with an exit velocity of 99 MPH and it was his third grand slam of his career, including two against the Reds. It was also his sixth homer overall this season.

The other Reds grand slam that they have given up this year was actually by Cubs catcher Willson Contreras on 4/22.

Check out Baez's home run that traveled up 20 rows of seats.
