    Look away, Chicago Cubs fans. 

    Chicago White Sox slugger Eloy Jiménez is making it a point this season to perform well against the team that traded him away. 

    Jiménez, who homered against the Cubs at Wrigley Field earlier this season, was back at it on Sunday at Guaranteed Rate Field, as he teed off on a Kyle Hendricks pitch in the fourth inning of the contest: 

    According to Amazon Web Services, the home run traveled 438 feet, and left Jiménez's bat at 109 mph. It also gave the White Sox a 2-0 lead in the game against their crosstown rivals. 

    According to NBC Sports Chicago's Christopher Kamka, Jiménez is the first player to hit home runs at Wrigley Field and Guaranteed Rate Field in the Cubs-Sox series since Gordon Beckham did it in 2014.
