The Cubs wasted little time getting on the board during Saturday’s matinee against the Pirates. Kris Bryant went deep on a 2-0 pitch against Pittsburgh starter Tyler Glasnow, sending the ball a projected 451 feet to score Kyle Schwarber for an early 2-0 lead.

The ball grazed the video scoreboard in left field before falling into the stands.¬†According to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com, only six home runs have managed to hit Wrigley Field’s monitor — unsurprisingly, Bryant is responsible for four of those shots.

The rest of the inning was no less impressive, as the Cubs followed Bryant’s first home run of the season by boosting the score to 4-0 and hitting for the cycle with a Kyle Schwarber leadoff double, Addison Russell triple and Jason Heyward RBI single.
