Cubs starting pitcher Jake Arrieta can do it all.
In the second inning of Chicago’s game against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, Arrieta hit a towering shot to deep left-center off Shelby Miller to give the Cubs an early 2–0 lead.
According to Statcast, the ball left Arrieta’s bat at 105 mph and traveled a projected 440 feet.
Arrieta has now hit three home runs over his last 22 starts, and allowed just two. The Cubs went on to beat the Diamondbacks 7–3.
