CHICAGO — Becoming the second Chicago Cubs slugger to hit 20 home runs this season, left fielder Kyle Schwarber knocked one out of the park in the second inning of Chicago's Saturday afternoon duel with the San Diego Padres. Carrying 405 feet to right-center, Schwarber's dinger provided the Cubs with a 1-0 lead.

Coming on a four-seamer thrown over the middle by Padres starter Walker Lockett, the solo round-tripper was a towering shot that left the bat at 37 degrees and 107 miles per hour. Schwarber is second on the team in home runs, as Javier Baez leads the Cubs with 23.
