Miles Mastrobuoni slugs 1st career home run off Cardinals' Jack Flaherty

NBC Universal, Inc.

The second game of a pivotal Cubs-Cardinals series is underway at Wrigley Field, and it's already been a banner day for Cubs' utility man Miles Mastrobuoni.

Trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the third inning, Mastrobuoni led off the frame with a booming shot to right-center field on a 3-1 count for his first career home run off Cardinals' right-hander Jack Flaherty to tie the game.

Mastrobuoni, 27, is playing in his 45th-career MLB game on Friday, having debuted and played eight games with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2022.

Mastrobuoni's home run kickstarted a lively third inning for the Cubs, who went on to score another three runs thanks to a Mike Tauchman RBI double and a two-run shot from Cody Bellinger.
