Kyle Schwarber is keeping it 100.

In Thursday's game against the Phillies, Schwarber hit a major milestone in his big league career. The 26-year-old hit his 100th career home run with a blast into deep center field at Citizens Bank Park.

Not only did he achieve a personal accomplishment, but Schwarber made Cubs history in the process. Among those who debuted with the Cubs, none have ever hit 100 home runs with the team faster than Schwarber. 

That's one illustrious group right there, folks. The blast was also Schwarber's 28th of the season, tying him with Javier Báez for most on the Cubs.

Fortunately for Schwarber, this home run against the Phillies was much smoother than one from earlier in his career.
