Joe Maddon described Kyle Schwarber's 460 ft home run onto Sheffield ave on Tuesday in Star Trek terms: "The Enterprise would fly by the screen and get really small. It (the ball) had that Enterprise-esque look to it. It was there and then it was gone."

Watch Kyle Schwarber discuss his 460 ft home run in the Cubs 4-1 win over the Giants on Tuesday.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cubs beat the Giants 4-1 behind Jon Lester's complete game, the first of the season for the team -- and first since he shutout the Giants last Sept. Lester was aided by 3 home runs including a 460 ft shot by Kyle Schwarber in the first inning. Anthony Rizzo and Jason Heyward also homered but Lester was the story. He gave up 4 hits and struck out 10 batters including 2 in the final inning. He was fantastic in a game that lasted just 2:05.
