Kris Bryant helped the Chicago Cubs to a sweet victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday when he smashed the record for longest hit in the MLB this season.

The third baseman hit a ball an estimated 495 feet in an epic home run at Wrigley Field, according to the Chicago Cubs. The hit marked Bryant's 23rd home run of the year.

The incredible hit also launched Bryant into Cubs rookie history as he now ties the team's franchise mark for RBIs by a rookie. Bryant's 81 RBIs match Billy Williams (1961) and Geovany Soto (2008).

The Cubs beat the Diamondbacks 6-4 to complete a three-game sweep.
