Andrew McCutchen has finally checked off another major milestone in his storied career.

Facing the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park on Sunday afternoon, McCutchen belted a two-run shot to left field in the ninth inning off of Ricardo Pinto for the 300th home run in his career. He becomes the 160th player all-time to hit that many.
