CHICAGO — Hammering a go-ahead blast, Chicago Cubs right fielder Nicholas Castellanos skied a 409-footer at Wrigley Field on Sunday. Putting the Cubs up 2-1 over the St. Louis Cardinals in the sixth inning, Castellanos jacked his 27th long ball of the year, marking a new career high for the outfielder.

The dinger, which marked the 16th blast of Castellanos' Cubs tenure, sailed out to center field after leaving the bat at 108 miles per hour and 39 degrees. Castellanos led off the bottom of the sixth with the round-tripper, which came on a fastball thrown by Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas.
