Jared Young hits first career home run at Wrigley Field

NBC Universal, Inc.

Just after being called up from Triple-A Iowa after slugging in Des Moines, Cubs' utility man Jared Young hit his first career home run at the Friendly Confines on Wednesday night against the Philadelphia Phillies.

For his first career long ball, the 27-year-old British Columbia native took Phillies' ace Aaron Nola deep on an 0-2 pitch to bring the Cubs back within four runs.

The Cubs will look to battle back against the Phillies, hoping to avoid the series loss at home to the defending National League champions.
