Chicago Cubs rightfielder Kyle Schwarber absolutely torched a two-run home run to rightfield in the third inning of Wednesday’s NL wild-card game to give Chicago a 3–0 lead.

With Dexter Fowler on base, Schwarber took a Gerrit Cole off-speed pitch deep to right, and flipped his bat as the ball cleared the stands.

Schwarber drove in the game’s first three runs, also adding an RBI single in the first inning.

The Cubs are seeking their first World Series win since 1908.
