VIDEO: Marcell Ozuna Breaks Out of Slump and Gulfs a Breaking Ball Out of Wrigley

This game just keeps going back and forth. The moment the Chicago Cubs took the lead on a Nico Hoerner solo home run, St. Louis Cardinals slugger Marcell Ozuna went down and handled a pitch he golfed over the left-center field wall. Take a look:

How did he do damage on that pitch? It was a slider headed for the dirt if he didn't make contact and give the Cardinals a 7-6 lead.

What makes the result even crazier was the slump Ozuna was in. Entering the game he was 7-for-55 with 15 strikeouts over his previous 15 games. I guess he's on the verge of going off after that swing.
