WATCH: Jon Lester Hit a Home Run!

Chicago Cubs

Jon Lester is in the process of absolutely dominating the Rockies on the mound (4.2 innings, 1 H, 1 BB, 0 R, 9(!) Ks, at present). That, alone, is impressive enough.

But the guy with the record for the longest hitless streak to start a career just did this:

That’s a JON. LESTER. HOME. RUN. And opposite field, to boot! Magnificent. Did you catch the point to the sky at the end of the Cubs version?

Also, Kyle Schwarber immediately followed up with another homer of his own. So that’s fun. Spring Training!
