New York Mets’ Todd Frazier was surprised of his home run during the third inning of Saturday’s game against the Chicago Cubs.
On Saturday, the New York Mets faced off against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field in the third of a four-game series. New York, sitting at 36-40 and eight games back from first place, desperately needed to start winning games and winning them consistently.
And during the third inning with the Mets already up 3-0 on Chicago, Todd Frazier helped them get that much closer to a victory.

Even he didn’t believe the ball was going to travel out of the park.
At first, it looked like it would be a routine deep fly out. However, Frazier got a little help from the wind, as the ball traveled into the stands in left field.
After the Mets finish up on Saturday, they have one more game against the Cubs on Sunday at 2:20 p.m. ET.
They then travel to Philadelphia for a four-game series against the second-place Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, and won’t return to Citi Field until Friday, June 28 when they face the Atlanta Braves.
