Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo hit a two out, 3-run home run to tie the game at 5-5 with two outs in the ninth inning against the Reds on Friday night.

The homer traveled an estimated 383 feet and had an exit velocity of 108 MPH. It was Rizzo's second game-tying homer of his career and first since 2012 according to ESPN Stats and Info.

The Cubs ended up winning the game after 11 innings and now currently in first place in the division for the first time this season.

An entertaining video for Cubs fans is the awkward call from Reds announcer Thom Brennaman of Rizzo's home run. Check out the 30 seconds of dead air below by Brennaman.
