A 468-foot home run is impressive in its own right, but Marcell Ozuna went above and beyond. Literally.
The Miami Marlins were scoreless in the fourth inning against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Park on Wednesday when Ozuna came to the plate with one out. And the Marlins left fielder promptly blasted a solo shot off Rays starter Blake Snell to left field for his longest home run of the Statcast era.
But it also soared so high that it hit the Rays’ 2011 American League wild card banner.
Snell gave up another run and ended his day with six hits, three walks and nine strikeouts over five innings. The Rays’ bullpen blew it, though, and Miami went home with a 10-6 win.
