by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta crushed a two-run home run in the second inning in Sunday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Arrieta has allowed only two homers while hitting three home runs since 6/21/15.

According to ESPN home run tracker, Arrieta's homer would be the 12th longest this season going into today at 442 feet. Another interesting stat is that he has a greater rate (6.11%) of extra base hits than he has allowed (5.02%) since 2014.

Check out the home run video below from the CY Young Award winner.

Here is another view of the home run from the stands.
