Schwarber crushes homerun, internet reacts accordingly

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - As if the fans were already hollering at the top of their lungs after Anthony Rizzo's solo home run in the sixth, they were really screaming after Schwarber's monstrous shot leading off the seventh.

Schwarber crushed a home run past the stands Tuesday night. And the internet exploded with memes.

One of the memes shows the ball leaving Wrigley Field and landing on the Oakland A's home turf. Another one shows Schwarber's ball lift off for outer space, where an astronaut made a diving catch to snag the ball. 

Twitter also exploded with hilarious tweets about the homer. Scroll to the bottom of this story to read some of the tweets! 

It turns out, the ball landed on top of the right-field videoboard and wound up nestled against a railing on the front edge. 

Schwarber is the first rookie in Chicago Cubs history to have 3 home runs in a single postseason - and it only took him four games.
