Holy hell did Nelson Cruz get into this 0-1 meatball from Brad Boxburger of the Rays:


ESPN’s Home Run Tracker says Cruz’s 482-foot dinger is the fifth-longest of the 2017 season. He’s hit some absolute bombs this year—this is his third homer to travel farther than 450 feet this month, and his fifth to top 440 feet on the season. Nelson Cruz is a big strong man! The Mariners triumphed over the Rays, 7-1, and are currently a half game out of the AL Wild Card.
