The New York Yankees crushed Chicago Cubs on Sunday to complete the sweep and add to their hot start to June.

In an 18-4 victory, Chicago sent the first baseman Frank Schwendel hits the hill on the eighth to give the Bulls a break on the aggregate. One of Schwendel’s fields may be among the slowest on record in a Major League Baseball game.

Schwindle was facing Yankees catcher Kyle Higashioka when he tossed at Evos 35 mph. There was no way Higashioka would miss the meatball down the middle of the plate. He turned around and sent her over the fence in his second home run of the season.
