Brendan Rodgers earned this week’s Smashburger “Smashed It” Play of the Week for his home run against the Cubs on Sunday.

With the Rockies trailing Chicago 1-0 in the third inning, Rodgers hit a ball to deep centerfield that snuck over the wall thanks to some help from the famous Wrigley Field wind. It gave Colorado a 2-1 lead, but unfortunately they’d go on to lose 4-3. It was the team’s 99th loss of the year, a franchise record.

Here’s how the play looked and sounded on Sunday.
