Baseball: Cubs' Suzuki hits first career MLB home run

Chicago Cubs rookie Seiya Suzuki hit the first home run of his Major League Baseball career in the team's 5-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday afternoon at Wrigley Field.

Suzuki gave the crowd a thrill in the first inning with a two-out, three-run homer off Milwaukee starter Freddy Peralta -- a blast that traveled 412 feet and landed deep in the left field bleachers.

The Japanese outfielder signed a five-year contract worth $85 million back in March. He went 1-for-3 in his third regular season game.

The Cubs won the first and third games of the series but the Brewers salvaged the final game thanks to a pinch-hit, go-ahead solo homer by Mike Brosseau in the seventh. The second game was postponed due to weather.
